Comments: Isolated from the fungus Coprinus cinereus. The enzyme also forms (+)-delta-cadinene, beta-copaene, (+)-sativene and traces of several other sequiterpenoids. It is found in many higher plants such as Magnolia grandiflora (Southern Magnolia) together with germacrene A. See Ec 4.2.3.13 Ec 4.2.3.127 Ec 4.2.3.129 and Ec 4.2.3.23.
