Accepted name: cis-muuroladiene synthase
Reaction: (1) (2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate = cis-muurola-3,5-diene + diphosphate
(2) (2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate = cis-muurola-4(14),5-diene + diphosphate

Other name(s): MxpSS1
Systematic name: (2E,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase (cis-muuroladiene-forming)
Comments: The recombinant enzyme from black peppermint (Mentha x piperita) gave a mixture of cis-muurola-3,5-diene (45%) and cis-muurola-4(14),5-diene (43%).
