Accepted name: 3-hydroxybenzoate synthase
Reaction: chorismate = 3-hydroxybenzoate + pyruvate
Glossary: chorismate = (3R,4R)-3-[(1-carboxyethenyl)oxy]-4-hydroxycyclohexa-1,5-diene-1-carboxylate
Other name(s): chorismatase/3-hydroxybenzoate synthase; hyg5 (gene name); bra8 (gene name); XanB2
Systematic name: chorismate pyruvate-lyase (3-hydroxybenzoate-forming)
Comments: The enzyme, found in several bacterial species is involved in biosynthesis of secondary products. The enzyme from the bacterium Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris also has the activity of EC, chorismate lyase [3].
