IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: (13E)-labda-7,13-dien-15-ol synthase

Reaction: geranylgeranyl diphosphate + H2O = (13E)-labda-7,13-dien-15-ol + diphosphate

Other name(s): labda-7,13E-dien-15-ol synthase

Systematic name: geranylgeranyl-diphosphate diphosphohydrolase [(13E)-labda-7,13-dien-15-ol-forming]

Comments: The enzyme from the lycophyte Selaginella moellendorffii is bifunctional, initially forming (13E)-labda-7,13-dien-15-yl diphosphate, which is hydrolysed to the alcohol.
