Accepted Name
(3S,6E)-nerolidol synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
(3S)-(E)-nerolidol synthase.
(E)-nerolidol synthase.
Nerolidol synthase.
Reaction catalysed
(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate + H(2)O <=> (3S,6E)-nerolidol + diphosphate
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme catalyzes a step in the formation of 4,8-dimethyl- 1,3(E),7-nonatriene, a key signal molecule in induced plant defense mediated by the attraction of enemies of herbivores (2).
  • Nerolidol is a naturally occurring sesquiterpene found in the essential oils of many types of plants.
