In enzymology, an oligosaccharide-diphosphodolichol diphosphatase (EC is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

oligosaccharide-diphosphodolichol + H2O Failed to parse (MathML with SVG or PNG fallback (recommended for modern browsers and accessibility tools): Invalid response ("Math extension cannot connect to Restbase.") from server "https://en.wikipedia.org/api/rest_v1/":): \rightleftharpoons oligosaccharide phosphate + dolichyl phosphate

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are oligosaccharide-diphosphodolichol and H2O, whereas its two products are oligosaccharide phosphate and dolichyl phosphate.

This enzyme belongs to the family of hydrolases, specifically those acting on acid anhydrides in phosphorus-containing anhydrides. The systematic name of this enzyme class is oligosaccharide-diphosphodolichol phosphodolichohydrolase. This enzyme is also called oligosaccharide-diphosphodolichol pyrophosphatase.
