Accepted name: lupan-3β,20-diol synthase
Reaction: lupan-3β,20-diol = (3S)-2,3-epoxy-2,3-dihydrosqualene + H2O

Other name(s): LUP1 (gene name)
Systematic name: (3S)-2,3-epoxy-2,3-dihydrosqualene hydro-lyase (lupan-3β,20-diol-forming)
Comments: The reaction occurs in the reverse direction. The recombinant enzyme from Arabidopsis thaliana gives a 1:1 mixture of lupeol and lupan-3β,20-diol with small amounts of β-amyrin, germanicol, taraxasterol and ψ-taraxasterol. See EC (lupeol synthase).
