Alpha-longipinene synthase (EC 4.2.3.80) is an enzyme with systematic name (2E,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase (alpha-longipinene-forming).[1][2] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

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

The enzyme from Norway spruce produces longifolene as the main product.
