EC 4.2.3.187     
Accepted name: (2Z,6E)-hedycaryol synthase
Reaction: (2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate + H2O = (2Z,6E)-hedycaryol + diphosphate
Glossary: (2Z,6E)-hedycaryol = (1E,4Z,7S)-germacra-1(10),4-dien-11-ol
Other name(s): HcS
Systematic name: (2E,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase [cyclizing, (2Z,6E)-hedycaryol-forming]
Comments: Isolated from the bacterium Kitasatospora setae. The stereochemistry suggests the farnesyl diphosphate rearranges to nerolidyl diphosphate or an equivalent intermediate before cyclization. See also EC 4.2.3.174 (2E,6E)-hedycaryol synthase.
