ENZYME entry: EC 1.14.14.31

Accepted Name
Ipsdienol synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
CYP9T2.
CYP9T3.
Myrcene hydroxylase.
Reaction catalysed
Myrcene + [reduced NADPH--hemoprotein reductase] + O(2) <=> (R)-ipsdienol + [oxidized NADPH--hemoprotein reductase] + H(2)O
Cofactor(s)
Heme-thiolate.
Comment(s)
  • Involved in the insect aggregation pheromone production.
  • Isolated from the pine engraver beetle, Ips pini.
  • A small amount of (S)-ipsdienol is also formed.
  • In vitro it also hydroxylates (+)- and (-)-alpha-pinene, 3-carene, and (+)-limonene, but not alpha-phellandrene, (-)-beta-pinene, gamma- terpinene, or terpinolene.
  • Formerly EC 1.14.13.207.
