Accepted name: inositol-phosphate phosphatase
Reaction: myo-inositol phosphate + H2O = myo-inositol + phosphate

Other name(s): myo-inositol-1(or 4)-monophosphatase; inositol 1-phosphatase; L-myo-inositol-1-phosphate phosphatase; myo-inositol 1-phosphatase; inositol phosphatase; inositol monophosphate phosphatase; inositol-1(or 4)-monophosphatase; myo-inositol-1(or 4)-phosphate phosphohydrolase; myo-inositol monophosphatase; myo-inositol-1-phosphatase
Systematic name: myo-inositol-phosphate phosphohydrolase
Comments: Acts on five of the six isomers of myo-inositol phosphate, all except myo-inositol 2-phosphate, but does not act on myo-inositol bearing more than one phosphate group. It also acts on adenosine 2′-phosphate (but not the 3′- or 5′- phosphates), sn-glycerol 3-phosphate and glycerol 2-phosphate. Two isoforms are known [4].
