Accepted name: 2-aminobenzoylacetyl-CoA thioesterase
Reaction: (2-aminobenzoyl)acetyl-CoA + H2O = (2-aminobenzoyl)acetate + CoA
Other name(s): pqsE (gene name)
Systematic name: (2-aminobenzoyl)acetyl-CoA hydrolase
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa, participates in the production of the signal molecule 2-heptyl-4(1H)-quinolone (HHQ).
