KEGG   ENZYME: 4.2.3.80Help
Entry
EC 4.2.3.80                 Enzyme                                 

Name
alpha-longipinene synthase
Class
Lyases;
Carbon-oxygen lyases;
Acting on phosphates
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
(2E,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase (alpha-longipinene-forming)
Reaction(IUBMB)
(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate = alpha-longipinene + diphosphate
Substrate
(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate [CPD:C00448]
Product
alpha-longipinene;
diphosphate [CPD:C00013]
Comment
The enzyme from Norway spruce produces longifolene as the main product (cf. EC 4.2.3.58, longifolene synthase). alpha-Longipinene constitutes about 15% of the total products.
History
EC 4.2.3.80 created 2011
