ENZYME entry: EC 4.2.3.55

Accepted Name
(S)-beta-bisabolene synthase.
Reaction catalysed
(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate <=> (S)-beta-bisabolene + diphosphate
Cofactor(s)
Manganese or magnesium.
Comment(s)
  • The synthesis of (S)-beta-macrocarpene from (2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate proceeds in two steps.
  • The first step is the cyclization to (S)-beta-bisabolene.
  • The second step is the isomerization to (S)-beta-macrocarpene (cf. EC 5.5.1.17, (S)-beta-macrocarpene synthase).
