KEGG   ENZYME: 4.2.3.77Help
Entry
EC 4.2.3.77                 Enzyme                                 

Name
(+)-germacrene D synthase
Class
Lyases;
Carbon-oxygen lyases;
Acting on phosphates
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
(2E,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase [(+)-germacrene-D-forming]
Reaction(IUBMB)
(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate = (+)-germacrene D + diphosphate [RN:R09558]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate [CPD:C00448]
Product
(+)-germacrene D [CPD:C19619];
diphosphate [CPD:C00013]
Comment
Requires Mg2+, Mn2+, Ni2+ or Co2+. The formation of (+)-germacrene D involves a 1,2-hydride shift whereas for (-)-germacrene D there is a 1,3-hydride shift (see EC 4.2.3.75).
