ENZYME entry: EC 4.2.3.56

Accepted Name
Gamma-humulene synthase.
Reaction catalysed
Farnesyl-diphosphate <=> gamma-humulene + diphosphate
Cofactor(s)
Manganese or magnesium.
Comment(s)
  • Has a broad product range.
  • While gamma-humulene is the major product, sibirene, longifolene, beta-himachalene, gamma-himachalene and alpha-himachalene are produced in appreciable amounts and further 47 other minor products can also be detected.
  • The enzyme can use geranyl diphosphate as a substrate, producing mainly limonene and terpinolene as the major products.
  • Formerly EC 4.2.3.n3.
