ENZYME entry: EC 4.2.3.87

Accepted Name
Alpha-guaiene synthase.
Reaction catalysed
(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate <=> alpha-guaiene + diphosphate
Cofactor(s)
Magnesium.
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme from Pogostemon cablin gives 13% alpha-guaiene as well as 37% (-)-patchoulol (see EC 4.2.3.70), 13% delta-guaiene (see EC 4.2.3.93), and traces of at least ten other sesquiterpenoids.
  • In Aquilaria crassna three clones of the enzyme gave about 80% delta- guaiene and 20% alpha-guaiene, with traces of alpha-humulene.
  • A fourth clone gave 54% delta-guaiene and 45% alpha-guaiene.
