Accepted name: linalool dehydratase
Reaction: (3S)-linalool = myrcene + H2O
For diagram of acyclic monoterpenoid biosynthesis, click here
Glossary: linalool = 3,7-dimethylocta-1,6-dien-3-ol
Other name(s): linalool hydro-lyase (myrcene-forming)
Systematic name: (3S)-linalool hydro-lyase (myrcene-forming)
Comments: In absence of oxygen the bifunctional linalool dehydratase-isomerase can catalyse in vitro two reactions, the hydration of myrcene to (3S)-linalool and the isomerization of (3S)-linalool to geraniol, the latter activity being classified as EC, geraniol isomerase.
