Reaction: kievitone hydrate = kievitone + H2O
Other name(s): KHase; kievitone-hydrate hydro-lyase
Systematic name: kievitone-hydrate hydro-lyase (kievitone-forming)
Comments: The enzyme from Fusarium sp. hydrates the methylbutenyl sidechain of the isoflavonoid phytoalexins, thus reducing their toxicity.
