ENZYME entry: EC 4.1.99.16

Accepted Name
Geosmin synthase.
Reaction catalysed
(1E,4S,5E,7R)-germacra-1(10),5-dien-11-ol + H(2)O <=> (-)-geosmin + acetone
Cofactor(s)
Magnesium.
Comment(s)
  • Geosmin is the cause of the characteristic smell of moist soil.
  • It is a bifunctional enzyme.
  • The N-terminal part of the enzyme is EC 4.2.3.22, germacradienol synthase, and forms germacradienol from FPP.
  • The C-terminal part of the enzyme catalyzes the conversion of germacradienol to geosmin via (1S,4aS,8aS)-8,10-dimethyl- 1,2,3,4,4a,5,6,8a-octahydronaphthalene.
