KEGG   ENZYME: 4.2.3.75Help
Entry
EC 4.2.3.75                 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:R07648]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate [CPD:C00448]
Product
(-)-germacrene D [CPD:C16142];
diphosphate [CPD:C00013]
Comment
In Solidago canadensis the biosynthesis results in the pro-R hydrogen at C-1 of the farnesy diphosphate ending up at C-11 of the (-)-germacrene D [1]. With Streptomyces coelicolor the pro-S hydrogen at C-1 ends up at C-11 of the (-)-germacrene D [2].
