(+)-germacrene D synthase (EC 4.2.3.77) is an enzyme with systematic name (2E,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase ((+)-germacrene-D-forming).[1] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate (+)-germacrene D + diphosphate

This enzyme requires Mg2+, Mn2+, Ni2+ or Co2+.
