IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 4.2.3.34

Names

Accepted name:
stemod-13(17)-ene synthase
Other names:
OsKSL11
stemodene synthase
Systematic name:
9α-copalyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase [stemod-13(17)-ene-forming]

Reaction

Comments:

This enzyme catalyses the committed step in the biosynthesis of the stemodane family of diterpenoid secondary metabolites, some of which possess mild antiviral activity. The enzyme also produces stemod-12-ene and stemar-13-ene as minor products.
