metabolism
alpha-humulene synthase is a key enzyme of zerumbone biosynthesis
metabolism
the enzyme is involved in the biosynthetic pathways for sesquiterpenes found in agarwood and cell suspension cultures, putative pathway, overview. Various post-transcriptional, translational, or post-translational regulatory mechanisms affecting the expression or activity of alpha-humulene and delta-guaiene synthases are possible; the enzyme is involved in the biosynthetic pathways for sesquiterpenes found in agarwood and cell suspension cultures, putative pathway, overview.

metabolism
the enzyme is involved in the zerumbone biosynthesis in Zingiber zerumbet, proposed pathway and mechanism, overview
more
sesquiterpene synthase alpha-humulene synthase (HUM) from Zingiber zerumbet is investigated for the bioconversion of the monoterpene precursors geranyl diphosphate (2E-GPP) and neryl diphosphate (2Z-NPP) as well as for the sesquiterpene precursor farnesyl diphosphate (2E,6E-FPP)

the enzyme contains conserved RPx8W motif and DDxxD motif, which is a divalent metal-ion substrate-binding site; the enzyme contains conserved RPx8W motif and DDxxD motif, which is a divalent metal-ion substrate-binding site; the enzyme contains conserved RPx8W motif and DDxxD motif, which is a divalent metal-ion substrate-binding site
physiological function
after tobacco rattlevirus-based virus induced gene silencing, beta-elemene, guaia-1(5),11-diene and guaia-1(10),11-diene are undetectable in suppressed leaves
physiological function
alpha-humulene is a common sesquiterpene widely distributed in plants, the synthase from Zingiber zerumbet is the only known sesquiterpene synthase to date catalyzing the formation of alpha-humulene as major product
