IUBMB Comments
The enzyme is a non-redox flavoprotein, containing FADH2 that is used for stabilization of a transition state. Lycopene has a psi-end group at both ends. When acting on one end, the enzyme forms gamma-carotene. When acting on both ends it forms beta-carotene. It also acts on neurosporene to give beta-zeacarotene.
