In enzymology, a farnesol 2-isomerase (EC 5.2.1.9) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

2-trans,6-trans-farnesol 2-cis,6-trans-farnesol

Hence, this enzyme has one substrate, 2-trans,6-trans-farnesol, and one product, 2-cis,6-trans-farnesol.

This enzyme belongs to the family of isomerases, specifically cis-trans isomerases, the systematic name of this enzyme class is 2-trans,6-trans-farnesol 2-cis-trans-isomerase. This enzyme is also called farnesol isomerase.
