EC 4.2.3.105     
Accepted name: tricyclene synthase
Reaction: geranyl diphosphate = tricyclene + diphosphate

Other name(s): TPS3
Systematic name: geranyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase (cyclizing; tricyclene-forming)
Comments: The enzyme from Solanum lycopersicum (tomato) gives a mixture of tricyclene, camphene, β-myrcene, limonene, and traces of several other monoterpenoids. See EC 4.2.3.117. (-)-camphene synthase, EC 4.2.3.15, myrcene synthase and EC 4.2.3.16, (4S)-limonene synthase.
