Reaction: (8R,9Z,12Z)-8-hydroperoxyoctadeca-9,12-dienoate = (5S,8R,9Z,12Z)-5,8-dihydroxyoctadeca-9,12-dienoate
Other name(s): 5,8-LDS (bifunctional enzyme); 5,8-linoleate diol synthase (bifunctional enzyme); 8-hydroperoxide isomerase; (8R,9Z,12Z)-8-hydroperoxy-9,12-octadecadienoate mutase ((5S,8R,9Z,12Z)-5,8-dihydroxy-9,12-octadecadienoate-forming); PpoA
Systematic name: (8R,9Z,12Z)-8-hydroperoxyoctadeca-9,12-dienoate hydroxymutase [(5S,8R,9Z,12Z)-5,8-dihydroxyoctadeca-9,12-dienoate-forming]
Comments: The enzyme contains heme . The bifunctional enzyme from Aspergillus nidulans uses different heme domains to catalyse two separate reactions. Linoleic acid is oxidized within the N-terminal heme peroxidase domain to (8R,9Z,12Z)-8-hydroperoxyoctadeca-9,12-dienoate (cf. EC 184.108.40.206, linoleate 8R-lipoxygenase), which is subsequently isomerized to (5S,8R,9Z,12Z)-5,8-dihydroxyoctadeca-9,12-dienoate within the C-terminal P-450 heme thiolate domain .
