More than one activity: Owing to their hydratase activity, phenolic acid decarboxylases catalyze the regio- and stereoselective addition of H2O across the C[DOUBLE BOND]C double bond of hydroxystyrene derivatives yielding (S)-4-(1-hydroxyethyl)phenols with up to 82 % conversion and 71 % ee. Based on structure analysis and molecular docking simulations, a catalytic mechanism for this novel enzymatic reaction is proposed.
