Accepted name: trans-o-hydroxybenzylidenepyruvate hydratase-aldolase
Reaction: (3E)-4-(2-hydroxyphenyl)-2-oxobut-3-enoate + H2O = salicylaldehyde + pyruvate

Glossary: (3E)-4-(2-hydroxyphenyl)-2-oxobut-3-enoate = (E)-2′-hydroxybenzylidenepyruvate
salicylaldehyde = 2-hydroxybenzaldehyde
Other name(s): 2′-hydroxybenzalpyruvate aldolase; NsaE; tHBPA hydratase-aldolase
Systematic name: (3E)-4-(2-hydroxyphenyl)-2-oxobut-3-enoate hydro-lyase
Comments: This enzyme is involved in naphthalene degradation. The enzyme catalyses a retro-aldol reaction in vitro, and it accepts a broad range of aldehydes and 4-substituted 2-oxobut-3-enoates as substrates [4].
