Accepted name: β-thujene synthase
Reaction: geranyl diphosphate = β-thujene + diphosphate
For diagram of thujane monoterpenoid biosynthesis, click here
Other name(s): CoTPS1
Systematic name: geranyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase (cyclizing, β-thujene-forming)
Comments: Isolated from the plant Cananga odorata var. fruticosa (ylang ylang). The enzyme forms roughly equal proportions of β-thujene, sabinene, β-pinene and α-terpinene see EC sabinene synthase, EC β-pinene synthase, EC α-terpinene synthase.
