ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Pentalenene synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
Pentalenene synthetase.
Reaction catalysed
(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate <=> pentalenene + diphosphate
  • Isolated from Streptomyces avermitilis.
  • The enzyme is involved in the biosynthesis of pentalenolactone and related antibiotics.
  • The 9si hydrogen of farnesyl diphosphate undergoes a 1,2-hydride shift where it becomes the 1-alpha hydrogen of pentalenene.
