Accepted name: 3-dehydroshikimate dehydratase
Reaction: 3-dehydro-shikimate = 3,4-dihydroxybenzoate + H2O
Glossary: 3,4-dihydroxybenzoate = protocatechuate
Systematic name: 3-dehydroshikimate hydro-lyase
Comments: Catalyses an early step in the biosynthesis of petrobactin, a siderophore produced by many bacteria, including the human pathogen Bacillus anthracis. Requires divalent ions, with a preference for Mn2+.
