Other name(s): (+)-copalyl-diphosphate lyase (decyclizing)
Systematic name: (+)-copalyl-diphosphate lyase (ring-opening)
Comments: In some plants, such as Salvia miltiorrhiza, this enzyme is monofunctional. In other plants this activity is often a part of a bifunctional enzyme. For example, in Selaginella moellendorffii this activity is catalysed by a bifunctional enzyme that also catalyses EC, miltiradiene synthase, while in the tree Abies grandis (grand fir) it is catalysed by a bifunctional enzyme that also catalyses EC, abietadiene synthase.
