Accepted name: oleuropein β-glucosidase
Reaction: oleuropein + H2O = oleuropein aglycone + D-glucopyranose
Glossary: oleuropein aglycone = methyl (2S,3E,4S)-4-{2-[2-(3,4-dihydroxyphenyl)ethoxy]-2-oxoethyl}-3-ethylidene-2-hydroxy-3,4-dihydro-2H-pyran-5-carboxylate
oleuropein = methyl (2R,3E,4S)-4-{2-[2-(3,4-dihydroxyphenyl)ethoxy]-2-oxoethyl}-3-ethylidene-2-(β-D-glucopyranosyloxy)-3,4-dihydro-2H-pyran-5-carboxylate
ligstroside = methyl (2S,3E,4S)-3-ethylidene-2-(β-D-glucopyranosyloxy)-4-{2-[2-(4-hydroxyphenyl)ethoxy]-2-oxoethyl}-3,4-dihydro-2H-pyran-5-carboxylate
Other name(s): OeGLU (gene name)
Systematic name: oleuropein 2-β-D-glucohydrolase
Comments: Oleuropein is a glycosylated secoiridoid exclusively biosynthesized by members of the Oleaceae plant family where it is part of a defence system againt herbivores. The enzyme also hydrolyses ligstroside and demethyloleuropein.
