EC 3.1.7.11     
Accepted name: geranyl diphosphate diphosphatase
Reaction: geranyl diphosphate + H2O = geraniol + diphosphate
For diagram of acyclic monoterpenoid biosynthesis, click here
Other name(s): geraniol synthase; geranyl pyrophosphate pyrophosphatase; GES; CtGES
Systematic name: geranyl-diphosphate diphosphohydrolase
Comments: Isolated from Ocimum basilicum (basil) and Cinnamomum tenuipile (camphor tree). Requires Mg2+ or Mn2+. Geraniol is labelled when formed in the presence of [18O]H2O. Thus mechanism involves a geranyl cation [1]. Neryl diphosphate is hydrolysed more slowly. May be the same as EC 3.1.7.3 monoterpenyl-diphosphatase.
