Enzyme Commission Primary Name: (+)-α-santalene synthase [(2Z,6Z)-farnesyl diphosphate cyclizing]

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: SBS (ambiguous)

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): -53.649994 Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Enzyme Commission Summary:
The enzyme synthesizes a mixture of sesquiterpenoids from (2Z,6Z)-farnesyl diphosphate. Following dephosphorylation of (2Z,6Z)-farnesyl diphosphate, the (2Z,6Z)-farnesyl carbocation is converted to either the (6R)- or the (6S)-bisabolyl cations depending on the stereochemistry of the 6,1 closure. The (6R)-bisabolyl cation will then lead to the formation of (+)-α-santalene (EC, while the (6S)-bisabolyl cation will give rise to (-)-endo-α-bergamotene (see EC and (+)-endo-β-bergamotene (see EC Small amounts of (-)-epi-β-santalene are also formed from the (6R)-bisabolyl cation and small amounts of (-)-exo-α-bergamotene are formed from the (6S)-bisabolyl cation [Sallaud09].
