KEGG   ENZYME: 4.2.3.26Help
Entry
EC 4.2.3.26                 Enzyme                                 

Name
R-linalool synthase;
(3R)-linalool synthase;
(-)-3R-linalool synthase
Class
Lyases;
Carbon-oxygen lyases;
Acting on phosphates
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
geranyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase [(3R)-linalool-forming]
Reaction(IUBMB)
geranyl diphosphate + H2O = (3R)-linalool + diphosphate [RN:R07632]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
geranyl diphosphate [CPD:C00341];
H2O [CPD:C00001]
Product
(3R)-linalool [CPD:C11388];
diphosphate [CPD:C00013]
Comment
Geranyl diphosphate cannot be replaced by isopentenyl diphosphate, dimethylallyl diphosphate, farnesyl diphosphate or geranylgeranyl diphosphate as substrate [1]. Requires Mg2+ or Mn2+ for activity. Unlike many other monoterpene synthases, only a single product, (3R)-linalool, is formed.
