Accepted name: (+)-epi-α-bisabolol synthase
Reaction: (2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate + H2O = (+)-epi-α-bisabolol + diphosphate
Glossary: (+)-epi-α-bisabolol = (2S)-6-methyl-2-[(1R)-4-methylcyclohex-3-en-1-yl]hept-5-en-2-ol
Systematic name: (2E,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase (cyclizing, (+)-epi-α-bisabolol-forming)
Comments: Isolated from the plant Phyla dulcis (Aztec sweet herb). (+)-epi-α-Bisabolol is the precursor of the sweetener hernandulcin.
