3-methoxy-4-hydroxy-5-decaprenylbenzoic acid (MHDB) is enzymatically decarboxylated to form 2-methoxy-6-decaprenylphenol (DMPhOH). At the present time the enzyme identity is unknown but is thought to be a member of the COQ family. This reaction is inferred from the equivalent reaction in yeast (Casey & Threlfall 1978, Goewert et al. 1981).
