Entry
EC 4.2.3.141                Enzyme                                 

Name
sclareol synthase;
SS
Class
Lyases;
Carbon-oxygen lyases;
Acting on phosphates
Sysname
(13E)-8alpha-hydroxylabd-13-en-15-yl-diphosphate-lyase (sclareol-forming)
Reaction(IUBMB)
(13E)-8alpha-hydroxylabd-13-en-15-yl diphosphate + H2O = sclareol + diphosphate [RN:R10241]
Reaction(KEGG)
R10241
Substrate
(13E)-8alpha-hydroxylabd-13-en-15-yl diphosphate [CPD:C20270];
H2O [CPD:C00001]
Product
sclareol [CPD:C09183];
diphosphate [CPD:C00013]
Comment
Isolated from the plant Salvia sclarea (clary sage). Originally thought to be synthesized in one step from geranylgeranyl diphosphate it is now known to require two enzymes, EC 4.2.1.133, copal-8-ol diphosphate synthase and EC 4.2.3.141, sclareol synthase. Sclareol is used in perfumery.
