IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
linalool isomerase
Other name:
3,1-hydroxyl-Δ12-mutase (linalool isomerase)
Systematic name:
(RS)-linalool hydroxymutase



Isolated from the bacterium Thauera linaloolentis grown on (RS)-linalool as the sole source of carbon. Unlike EC, geraniol isomerase, which only acts on (S)-linalool, this enzyme acts equally well on both enantiomers.
