ENZYME entry: EC 4.2.3.101

Accepted Name
7-epi-sesquithujene synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
TPS4-B73.
Reaction catalysed
(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate <=> 7-epi-sesquithujene + diphosphate
Cofactor(s)
Manganese or magnesium.
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme from Zea mays, variety B73, gives mainly 7-epi- sesquithujene with (S)-beta-bisabolene and traces of other sesquiterpenoids, cf. EC 4.2.3.55.
  • The product ratio is dependent on which metal ion is present.
  • 7-epi-sesquithujene is an attractant for the emerald ash borer beetle.
