Accepted Name
(-)-camphene synthase.
Reaction catalysed
Geranyl-diphosphate <=> (-)-camphene + diphosphate
Comment(s)
  • (-)-Camphene is the major product in Abies grandis (grand fir) with traces of other monoterpenoids.
  • In Pseudotsuga menziesii (Douglas-fir) there are about equal parts of (-)-camphene and (-)-alpha-pinene with traces of four other monoterpenoids.
  • In Solanum lycopersicum (tomato) tricyclene, beta-myrcene, limonene, and traces of several other monoterpenoids are also formed.
  • See also EC 4.2.3.15, EC 4.2.3.16, EC 4.2.3.119 and EC 4.2.3.105.
