Accepted name: isochorismate lyase
Reaction: isochorismate = salicylate + pyruvate
Other name(s): salicylate biosynthesis protein pchB; pyochelin biosynthetic protein PchB; isochorismate pyruvate lyase
Systematic name: isochorismate pyruvate-lyase (salicylate-forming)
Comments: This enzyme is part of the pathway of salicylate formation from chorismate, and forms an integral part of pathways that produce salicylate-derived siderophores, such as pyochelin and yersiniabactin.
