ENZYME entry: EC 4.2.3.49

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