Entry
EC 4.2.3.160                Enzyme                                 

Name
(2S,3R,6S,9S)-(-)-protoillud-7-ene synthase;
TPS6 (gene name)
Class
Lyases;
Carbon-oxygen lyases;
Acting on phosphates
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
(2E,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase [cyclizing, (2S,3R,6S,9S)-(-)-protoillud-7-ene-forming]
Reaction(IUBMB)
(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate = (2S,3R,6S,9S)-(-)-protoillud-7-ene + diphosphate [RN:R11825]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate [CPD:C00448]
Product
(2S,3R,6S,9S)-(-)-protoillud-7-ene [CPD:C21676];
diphosphate [CPD:C00013]
Comment
The enzyme has been described from the slime-mould Dictyostelium discoideum. It is specific for (2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate. While the major product is the sequiterpene (2S,3R,6S,9S)-(-)-protoillud-7-ene, traces of pentalenene are also formed.
