IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 4.2.3.122

Names

Accepted name:
(+)-β-pinene synthase
Other names:
(+)-pinene cyclase
cyclase III
Systematic name:
geranyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase [(+)-β-pinene-forming]

Reaction

Comments:

Cyclase III from Salvia officinalis (sage) gives roughly equal parts of (+)-β-pinene and (+)-α-pinene. See EC 4.2.3.121, (+)-α-pinene synthase.
