Reaction: 2,4-dichloro-2,5-dihydro-5-oxofuran-2-acetate = 2,4-dichloro-cis,cis-muconate

Other name(s): α-pinene oxide lyase; α-pinene-oxide lyase (decyclizing)
Systematic name: α-pinene-oxide lyase (ring-opening)
Comments: Requires Mn2+. The product of cycloisomerization of dichloro-cis,cis-muconate spontaneously eliminates chloride to produce cis-4-carboxymethylene-3-chlorobut-2-en-4-olide. Also acts, in the reverse direction, on cis,cis-muconate and its monochloro-derivatives, but with lower affinity. Not identical with EC 126.96.36.199 (muconate cycloisomerase) or EC 188.8.131.52 (chloromuconate cycloisomerase).
