Accepted name: avermitilol synthase
Reaction: (2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate + H2O = avermitilol + diphosphate
For diagram of bicyclogermacrene and avermitilol biosynthesis, click here
Systematic name: avermitilol hydrolase (cyclizing, avermitilol-forming)
Comments: Requires Mg2+. The recombinent enzyme gives avermitilol (85%) plus traces of germacrene A, germacrene B and viridiflorol. The (1S)-hydrogen of farnesyl diphosphate is retained.
