ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Aristolochene synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
Sesquiterpene cyclase.
Trans,trans-farnesyl diphosphate aristolochene-lyase.
Reaction catalysed
(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate <=> aristolochene + diphosphate
Mg(2+); Mn(2+).
  • The initial internal cyclization produces the monocyclic intermediate germacrene A; further cyclization and methyl transfer converts the intermediate into aristolochene.
  • While in some species germacrene A remains as an enzyme-bound intermediate, it has been shown to be a minor product of the reaction in Penicillium roqueforti (see also EC
  • Aristolochene is the likely parent compound for a number of sesquiterpenes produced by filamentous fungi.
  • Formerly EC and EC
