Alpha-gurjunene synthase (EC 4.2.3.72) is an enzyme with systematic name (2E,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase ((-)-alpha-gurjunene-forming).[1] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate (-)-alpha-gurjunene + diphosphate

Initial cyclization probably gives biyclogermacrene in an enzyme bound form.
