IUBMB Comments
Isolated from the fungus Coprinus cinereus. The enzyme also forms (+)-delta-cadinene, beta-copaene, (+)-sativene and traces of several other sequiterpenoids [2-4]. It is found in many higher plants such as Magnolia grandiflora (Southern Magnolia) together with germacrene A . See EC 4.2.3.13, (+)-delta-cadinene synthase, EC 4.2.3.127, beta-copaene synthase, EC 4.2.3.129, (+)-sativene synthase, and EC 4.2.3.23, germacrene A synthase.
