ENZYME entry: EC 4.2.3.72

Accepted Name
Alpha-gurjunene synthase.
Reaction catalysed
(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate <=> (-)-alpha-gurjunene + diphosphate
Comment(s)
  • Initial cyclization probably gives biyclogermacrene in an enzyme bound form which is not released to the medium.
  • The enzyme from Solidago canadensis also forms a small amount of (+)- gamma-gurjunene.
