Accepted name: geranyl diphosphate phosphohydrolase
Reaction: geranyl diphosphate + H2O = geranyl phosphate + phosphate

Other name(s): NUDX1 (gene name)
Systematic name: geranyl-diphosphate phosphohydrolase
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from roses, is involved in a cytosolic pathway for the biosynthesis of free monoterpene alcohols that contribute to fragrance. In vitro the enzyme also acts on (2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate.
