Enzymes and Genes:

Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv : halimadienyl-diphosphate synthase Inferred from experiment : Rv3377c

In Pathway: tuberculosinol 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: halimadienyl-diphosphate synthase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: Rv3377c, halimadienyl diphosphate synthase, tuberculosinol diphosphate synthase, halima-5(6),13-dien-15-yl-diphosphate lyase (cyclizing)

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): -42.25 Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Enzyme Commission Summary:
Requires Mg2+ for activity. This enzyme is found in pathogenic prokaryotes such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis but not in non-pathogens such as Mycobacterium smegmatis so may play a role in pathogenicity. The product of the reaction is subsequently dephosphorylated yielding tuberculosinol [halima-5(6),13-dien-15-ol].
