Entry
EC 3.1.7.11                 Enzyme                                 

Name
geranyl diphosphate diphosphatase;
geraniol synthase;
geranyl pyrophosphate pyrophosphatase;
GES;
CtGES
Class
Hydrolases;
Acting on ester bonds;
Diphosphoric-monoester hydrolases
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
geranyl-diphosphate diphosphohydrolase
Reaction(IUBMB)
geranyl diphosphate + H2O = geraniol + diphosphate [RN:R08396]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
geranyl diphosphate [CPD:C00341];
H2O [CPD:C00001]
Product
geraniol [CPD:C01500];
diphosphate [CPD:C00013]
Comment
Isolated from Ocimum basilicum (basil) and Cinnamomum tenuipile (camphor tree). Requires Mg2+ or Mn2+. Geraniol is labelled when formed in the presence of [18O]H2O. Thus mechanism involves a geranyl cation [1]. Neryl diphosphate is hydrolysed more slowly. May be the same as EC 3.1.7.3 monoterpenyl-diphosphatase.
