EC 5.4.4.4     
Accepted name: geraniol isomerase
Reaction: geraniol = (3S)-linalool
For diagram of acyclic monoterpenoid biosynthesis, click here
Systematic name: geraniol hydroxymutase
Comments: In absence of oxygen the bifunctional linalool dehydratase-isomerase can catalyse in vitro two reactions, the isomerization of (3S)-linalool to geraniol and the hydration of myrcene to (3S)-linalool, the latter activity being classified as EC 4.2.1.127, linalool dehydratase.
