IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 1.97.1.2

Names

Accepted name:
pyrogallol hydroxytransferase
Other names:
1,2,3,5-tetrahydroxybenzene hydroxyltransferase
1,2,3,5-tetrahydroxybenzene-pyrogallol hydroxyltransferase (transhydroxylase)
1,2,3,5-tetrahydroxybenzene:1,2,3-trihydroxybenzene hydroxyltransferase
1,2,3,5-tetrahydroxybenzene:pyrogallol transhydroxylase
pyrogallol hydroxyltransferase
Systematic name:
1,2,3,5-tetrahydroxybenzene:1,2,3-trihydroxybenzene hydroxytransferase

Reaction

Cofactor

Comments:

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.
