2-hydroxymuconate tautomerase (EC, 4-oxalocrotonate tautomerase, 4-oxalocrotonate isomerase, cnbG (gene), praC (gene), xylH (gene)) is an enzyme with systematic name (2Z,4E)-2-hydroxyhexa-2,4-dienedioate keto-enol isomerase.[1][2][3][4][5][6] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

(2Z,4E)-2-hydroxyhexa-2,4-dienedioate (3E)-2-oxohex-3-enedioate

Involved in the meta-cleavage pathway for the degradation of phenols, modified phenols and catechols.
