ENZYME entry: EC 4.2.3.108

Accepted Name
1,8-cineole synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
1,8-cineole cyclase.
Reaction catalysed
(2E)-geranyl diphosphate + H2O <=> 1,8-cineole + diphosphate
Comment(s)
  • 1,8-cineole is the main product from the enzyme with just traces of other monoterpenoids.
  • The oxygen atom is derived from water.
  • The reaction proceeds via linalyl diphosphate and alpha-terpineol, the stereochemistry of both depends on the organism.
  • However neither intermediate can substitute for geranyl diphosphate.
  • The reaction in Salvia officinalis (sage) proceeds via (-)-(3R)- linalyl diphosphate while that in Arabidopsis (rock cress) proceeds via (+)-(3S)-linalyl diphosphate.
