Salicylate decarboxylase.
Alternative Name(s)
Salicylic acid decarboxylase.
Reaction catalysed
Salicylate <=> phenol + CO(2)
Comment(s)
  • In the reverse direction the enzyme catalyzes the regioselective carboxylation of phenol into stoichiometric amounts of salicylate.
  • The enzyme also catalyzes the reversible decarboxylation of 2,4- dihydroxybenzoate, 2,6-dihydroxybenzoate, 2,3-dihydroxybenzoate and 4-aminosalicylate.
