Accepted name: orsellinate-depside hydrolase
Reaction: orsellinate depside + H2O = 2 orsellinate
Glossary: orsellinate = 2,4-dihydroxy-6-methylbenzoate
Other name(s): lecanorate hydrolase
Systematic name: orsellinate-depside hydrolase
Comments: The enzyme will only hydrolyse those substrates based on the 2,4-dihydroxy-6-methylbenzoate structure that also have a free hydroxy group ortho to the depside linkage.
