The expected taxonomic range for this enzyme is: Solanum lycopersicum
geranyl diphosphate = tricyclene + diphosphate
oleoresin monoterpene volatiles biosynthesis
geranyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase (cyclizing; tricyclene-forming)
The enzyme from Solanum lycopersicum (tomato) gives a mixture of tricyclene, camphene, beta-myrcene, limonene, and traces of several other monoterpenoids. See EC 184.108.40.206. (-)-camphene synthase, EC 220.127.116.11, myrcene synthase and EC 18.104.22.168, (4S)-limonene synthase.
