violaxanthin de-epoxidase

Cat No.
EXWM-1269
Description
Along with EC 1.14.13.90, zeaxanthin epoxidase, this enzyme forms part of the xanthophyll (or violaxanthin) cycle for controlling the concentration of zeaxanthin in chloroplasts. It is activated by a low pH of the thylakoid lumen (produced by high light intensity). Zeaxanthin induces the dissipation of excitation energy in the chlorophyll of the light-harvesting protein complex of photosystem II. In higher plants the enzyme reacts with all-trans-diepoxides, such as violaxanthin, and all-trans-monoepoxides, but in the alga Mantoniella squamata, only the diepoxides are good substrates.

Reaction
violaxanthin + 2 L-ascorbate = zeaxanthin + 2 L-dehydroascorbate + 2 H2O (overall reaction); (1a) violaxanthin + L-ascorbate = antheraxanthin + L-dehydroascorbate + H2O; (1b) antheraxanthin + L-ascorbate = zeaxanthin + L-dehydroascorbate + H2O
