Glossary: 2-hydroxybenzoyl-CoA = salicyloyl-CoA
Other name(s): BIS2; BIS3
Systematic name: malonyl-CoA:2-hydroxybenzoyl-CoA malonyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme, a polyketide synthase, can also accept benzoyl-CoA as substrate, which it condenses with 3 malonyl-CoA molecules to form 3,5-dihydroxybiphenyl (cf. EC 188.8.131.52, biphenyl synthase) .
