EC 22.214.171.124 - Stemod-13(17)-ene synthase
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
- 9alpha-copalyl diphosphate = stemod-13(17)-ene + diphosphate
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.
