IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 3.1.7.11

Names

Accepted name:
geranyl diphosphate diphosphatase
Other names:
geraniol synthase
geranyl pyrophosphate pyrophosphatase
GES
GtGES
Systematic name:
geranyl-diphosphate diphosphohydrolase

Reaction

Cofactor

Comments:

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.
