IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 3.1.7.3

Names

Accepted name:
monoterpenyl-diphosphatase
Other names:
bornyl pyrophosphate hydrolase
monoterpenyl-pyrophosphatase
Systematic name:
monoterpenyl-diphosphate diphosphohydrolase

Reaction

Comments:

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.
