Accepted name: bicyclogermacrene synthase
Reaction: (2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate = bicyclogermacrene + diphosphate

Other name(s): Ov-TPS4
Systematic name: (2E,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase (bicyclogermacrene-forming)
Comments: The enzyme from oregano (Origanum vulgare) gives mainly bicyclogermacrene with Mn2+ as a cofactor. With Mg2+ a more complex mixture is produced.
