ENZYME entry: EC 3.1.7.11

Accepted Name
Geranyl diphosphate diphosphatase.
Alternative Name(s)
Geraniol synthase.
Geranyl pyrophosphate pyrophosphatase.
Reaction catalysed
Geranyl diphosphate + H(2)O <=> geraniol + diphosphate
Cofactor(s)
Mn(2+) or Mg(2+).
Comment(s)
  • Isolated from Ocimum basilicum (basil) and Cinnamomum tenuipile (camphor tree).
  • Geraniol is labelled when formed in the presence of ((18)O)H2O.
  • Thus mechanism involves a geranyl cation.
  • Neryl diphosphate is hydrolyzed more slowly.
  • May be the same as EC 3.1.7.3.
