Accepted name: maleylpyruvate hydrolase
Reaction: 3-maleylpyruvate + H2O = maleate + pyruvate
Glossary: 3-maleylpyruvate = (2Z)-4,6-dioxohept-2-enedioate
Other name(s): hbzF (gene name)
Systematic name: (2Z)-4,6-dioxohept-2-enedioate acylhydrolase
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Pseudomonas alcaligenes NCIMB 9867, catalyses the hydrolysis of 3-maleylpyruvate, the ring-cleavage product of gentisate. The enzyme can also act on a number of maleylpyruvate derivatives, such as (2E)-2-methyl-4,6-dioxohept-2-enedioate and (2E)-3-methyl-4,6-dioxohept-2-enedioate. Activated by Mn2+. May be identical to EC, acylpyruvate hydrolase.
