Accepted name: β-pinacene synthase
Reaction: geranylgeranyl diphosphate = β-pinacene + diphosphate
Glossary: β-pinacene = 4,8,12-trimethyl-1-(propan-2-yl)cyclotetradeca-1,3,7,11-tetraene
Other name(s): PcS
Systematic name: geranylgeranyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase (cyclizing, β-pinacene-forming)
Comments: Isolated from the slime mould Dictyostelium discoideum. The 1-proR hydrogen atom of geranylgeranyl diphosphate is lost in the reaction.
