ENZYME entry: EC 4.2.3.40

Accepted Name
(Z)-gamma-bisabolene synthase.
Reaction catalysed
(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate <=> (Z)-gamma-bisabolene + diphosphate
Comment(s)
  • This sesquiterpenoid enzyme is constitutively expressed in the root, hydathodes and stigma of the plant Arabidopsis thaliana.
  • If the leaves of the plant are wounded, e.g. by cutting, the enzyme is also induced close to the wound site.
  • The sesquiterpenoids (E)-nerolidol and alpha-bisabolol are also produced by this enzyme as minor products.
