Superfamily HAD superfamily/HAD-like
Functional Family Bifunctional epoxide hydrolase 2

Enzyme Information
Soluble epoxide hydrolase.
based on mapping to UniProt P34913
An epoxide + H(2)O = a glycol.
-!- Catalyzes the hydrolysis of trans-substituted epoxides, such as trans-stilbene oxide, as well as various aliphatic epoxides derived from fatty-acid metabolism. -!- It is involved in the metabolism of arachidonic epoxides (epoxyeicosatrienoic acids; EETs) and linoleic acid epoxides. -!- The enzyme from mammals is a bifunctional enzyme: the C-terminal domain exhibits epoxide-hydrolase activity and the N-terminal domain has the activity of EC -!- Like EC, it is probable that the reaction involves the formation of an hydroxyalkyl-enzyme intermediate. -!- The enzyme can also use leukotriene A(4), the substrate of EC, but it forms 5,6-dihydroxy-7,9,11,14-eicosatetraenoic acid rather than leukotriene B(4) as the product. -!- Formerly EC, EC and EC
Lipid-phosphate phosphatase.
based on mapping to UniProt P34913
(9S,10S)-10-hydroxy-9-(phosphonooxy)octadecanoate + H(2)O = (9S,10S)- 9,10-dihydroxyoctadecanoate + phosphate.
-!- The enzyme from mammals is a bifunctional enzyme: the N-terminal domain exhibits lipid-phosphate-phosphatase activity and the C-terminal domain has the activity of EC -!- The best substrates for this enzyme are 10-hydroxy-9- (phosphonooxy)octadecanoates, with the threo- form being a better substrate than the erythro- form. -!- The phosphatase activity is not found in plant EC or in mammalian EC
