ENZYME entry: EC 4.2.3.38

Accepted Name
Alpha-bisabolene synthase.
Reaction catalysed
(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate <=> (E)-alpha-bisabolene + diphosphate
Cofactor(s)
Magnesium.
Comment(s)
  • While unlikely to encounter geranyl diphosphate (GDP) in vivo as it is localized to plastids, the enzyme can use GDP as a substrate in vitro to produce (+)-(4R)-limonene (cf. EC 4.2.3.20).
  • Induced as part of a defense mechanism in the grand fir Abies grandis as a response to stem wounding.
  • Formerly EC 4.2.3.n1.
