Accepted name: cannabidiolic acid synthase
Reaction: cannabigerolate + O2 = cannabidiolate + H2O2

Glossary: cannabigerolate = CBGA = 3-[(2E)-3,7-dimethylocta-2,6-dien-1-yl]-2,4-dihydroxy-6-pentylbenzoate
cannabidiolate = 2,4-dihydroxy-3-[(1R,6R)-3-methyl-6-(prop-1-en-2-yl)cyclohex-2-en-1-yl]-6-pentylbenzoate
Other name(s): CBDA synthase
Systematic name: cannabigerolate:oxygen oxidoreductase (cyclizing, cannabidiolate-forming)
Comments: Binds FAD covalently. Part of the cannabinoids biosynthetic pathway of the plant Cannabis sativa. The enzyme can also convert cannabinerolate to cannabidiolate with lower efficiency.
