Camphor 5monooxygenase

This enzyme [EC 1.14.15.1], also known as camphor 5-exo-methylene hydroxylase, and cytochrome P450-cam, catalyzes the reaction of (+ )-camphor with putidare-doxin and dioxygen to generate (+)-exo-5-hydroxy-camphor, oxidized putidaredoxin, and water. A heme-thiolate acts as a cofactor. The enzyme can also utilize (-)-camphor as a substrate, and 1,2A-campholide will result in the formation of 5-exo-hydroxy-1,2-campholide.
