Sysname
geranyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase [cyclizing; (S)-limonene-forming]
Reaction(IUBMB)
geranyl diphosphate = (S)-limonene + diphosphate [RN:R02013]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
geranyl diphosphate [CPD:C00341]
Product
(S)-limonene;
diphosphate [CPD:C00013]
Comment
A recombinant enzyme (also known as a monoterpene synthase or cyclase) from the grand fir (Abies grandis) requires Mn2+ and K+ for activity. Mg2+ is essentially ineffective as the divalent metal ion cofactor.
