KEGG   ENZYME: 3.1.7.3Help
Entry
EC 3.1.7.3                  Enzyme                                 

Name
monoterpenyl-diphosphatase;
bornyl pyrophosphate hydrolase;
monoterpenyl-pyrophosphatase
Class
Hydrolases;
Acting on ester bonds;
Diphosphoric-monoester hydrolases
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
monoterpenyl-diphosphate diphosphohydrolase
Reaction(IUBMB)
a monoterpenyl diphosphate + H2O = a monoterpenol + diphosphate [RN:R03016]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
monoterpenyl diphosphate [CPD:C03517];
H2O [CPD:C00001]
Product
monoterpenol [CPD:C00863];
diphosphate [CPD:C00013]
Comment
A group of enzymes with varying specificity for the monoterpenol moiety. One has the highest activity on sterically hindered compounds such as (+)-bornyl diphosphate; another has highest activity on the diphosphates of primary allylic alcohols such as geraniol.
