Neoabietadiene synthase (EC 4.2.3.132, AgAS, PtTPS-LAS) is an enzyme with systematic name (+)-copaly-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase (cyclizing, neoabietadiene-forming).[1][2][3] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

(+)-copalyl diphosphate neoabietadiene + diphosphate

This enzyme is isolated from Abies grandis (grand fir).
