EC 4.4.1.34     
Accepted name: isoprene-epoxide—glutathione S-transferase
Reaction: 2-(glutathion-S-yl)-2-methylbut-3-en-1-ol = (3R)-3,4-epoxy-3-methylbut-1-ene + glutathione

Other name(s): isoI (gene name)
Systematic name: 2-(glutathion-S-yl)-2-methylbut-3-en-1-ol lyase [(3R)-3,4-epoxy-3-methylbut-1-ene forming]
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Rhodococcus sp. AD45, is involved in isoprene degradation. The enzyme can catalyse the glutathione-dependent ring opening of various epoxides, but the highest activity is with (3R)-3,4-epoxy-3-methylbut-1-ene, which is derived from isoprene by EC 1.14.13.69, alkene monooxygenase.
