sophoraflavanone B [CPD:
Requires Mg2+. This membrane-bound protein is located in the plastids . In addition to naringenin, the enzyme can prenylate several other flavanones at the C-8 position, but more slowly. Along with EC
(8-dimethylallylnaringenin 2'-hydroxylase) and EC
(leachianone G 2''-dimethylallyltransferase), this enzyme forms part of the sophoraflavanone-G-biosynthesis pathway.
