Accepted name: terpentetriene synthase
Reaction: terpentedienyl diphosphate = terpentetriene + diphosphate
For diagram of diterpenoid biosynthesis, click here
Other name(s): Cyc2
Systematic name: terpentedienyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase (terpentetriene-forming)
Comments: Requires Mg2+ for maximal activity but can use Mn2+, Fe2+ or Co2+ to a lesser extent [2]. Following on from EC, terpentedienyl-diphosphate synthase, this enzyme completes the transformation of geranylgeranyl diphosphate (GGDP) into terpentetriene, which is a precursor of the diterpenoid antibiotic terpentecin. Farnesyl diphosphate can also act as a substrate.
