Cofactor(s): Mg(2+).
Comments: Geosmin is the cause of the characteristic smell of moist soil. It is a bifunctional enzyme. The N-terminal part of the enzyme is Ec, germacradienol synthase, and forms germacradienol from Fpp. The C-terminal part of the enzyme catalyzes the conversion of germacradienol to geosmin via (1S,4aS,8aS)-8,10-dimethyl- 1,2,3,4,4a,5,6,8a-octahydronaphthalene.
