BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
(2Z,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase (cyclizing, 5-epi-alpha-selinene-forming)
Reaction(IUBMB)
(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate = 5-epi-alpha-selinene + diphosphate [RN:R09890]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate [CPD:C00448]
Product
5-epi-alpha-selinene [CPD:C20163];
