Accepted name: thebaine synthase
Reaction: salutaridinol 7-O-acetate = thebaine + acetate

Other name(s): THS
Systematic name: salutaridinol 7-O-acetate acetate-lyase (thebaine-forming)
Comments: Isolated from the plant Papaver somniferum (opium poppy). The reaction occurs spontaneously when the pH is between 8-9, but the enzyme is required at the physiological pH, which is close to 7.
