Name
alpha-selinene synthase;
LfTPS2 (gene name)
Class
Lyases;
Carbon-oxygen lyases;
Acting on phosphates
Sysname
(2E,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase (cyclizing, alpha-selinene-forming)
Reaction(IUBMB)
(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate = alpha-selinene + diphosphate [RN:R12260]
Reaction(KEGG)
R12260
Substrate
(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate [CPD:C00448]
Product
alpha-selinene [CPD:C22044];
diphosphate [CPD:C00013]
Comment
The enzyme from the plant Ocimum basilicum (sweet basil) also produces beta-selinene while that from Liquidambar formosana (Formosan sweet gum) also produces traces of aromadendrene.
