EC 4.2.3.177     
Accepted name: β-thujene synthase
Reaction: geranyl diphosphate = β-thujene + diphosphate
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 4.2.3.109/EC 4.2.3.110 sabinene synthase, EC 4.2.3.120/EC 4.2.3.122 β-pinene synthase, EC 4.2.3.115 α-terpinene synthase.
