EC Number: 188.8.131.52
In Pathway: terpentecin biosynthesis
The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.
Mass balance status: Balanced.
Enzyme Commission Primary Name: terpentedienyl-diphosphate synthase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: terpentedienol diphosphate synthase, Cyc1, clerodadienyl diphosphate synthase
Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG'° in kcal/mol): -56.66 [Latendresse13]
Enzyme Commission Summary:
Requires Mg2+. Contains a DXDD motif, which is a characteristic of diterpene cylases whose reactions are initiated by protonation at the 14,15-double bond of geranylgeranyl diphosphate (GGDP) [Hamano02]. The triggering proton is lost at the end of the cyclization reaction [Eguchi03a]. The product of the reaction, terpentedienyl diphosphate, is the substrate for EC 184.108.40.206, terpentetriene synthase and is a precursor of the diterpenoid antibiotic terpentecin.
