1,2,3,5-tetrahydroxybenzene-pyrogallol hydroxyltransferase (transhydroxylase);
Sole sub-subclass for oxidoreductases that do not belong in the other subclasses
1,2,3,5-tetrahydroxybenzene + 1,2,3-trihydroxybenzene = 1,3,5-trihydroxybenzene + 1,2,3,5-tetrahydroxybenzene [RN:
1,2,3,5-Tetrahydroxybenzene acts as a co-substrate for the conversion of pyrogallol into phloroglucinol, and for a number of similar isomerizations. The enzyme is provisionally listed here, but might be considered as the basis for a new class in the transferases, analogous to the aminotransferases.
