IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 5.4.99.48

Names

Accepted name:
achilleol B synthase
Systematic name:
(3S)-2,3-epoxy-2,3-dihydrosqualene mutase (cyclizing, achilleol-B-forming)

Reaction

Comments:

Achilleol B is probably formed by cleavage of the 8-14 and 9-10 bonds of (3S)-2,3-epoxy-2,3-dihydrosqualene as part of the cyclization reaction, after formation of the oleanane skeleton.
