ENZYME entry: EC 4.2.3.n2

Accepted Name
Delta-selinene synthase.
Reaction catalysed
  • (2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate <=> (E,E)-germacrene B + diphosphate
  • (2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate <=> (+)-delta-cadinene + diphosphate
Cofactor(s)
Mg(2+).
Comment(s)
  • Has a broad product range.
  • While delta-selinene is the major product, (E,E)-germacrene B, guaia- 6,9-diene, germacrene A and delta-cadinene are produced in appreciable amounts and further 29 other minor products can also be detected.
  • The enzyme can use geranyl diphosphate as a substrate, producing mainly limonene, (Z)-ocimene and myrcene as the major products.
