Thujopsene synthase (EC 4.2.3.79) is an enzyme with systematic name (2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate lyase (cyclizing, (+)-thujopsene-forming).[1][2] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate (+)-thujopsene + diphosphate

The recombinant enzyme from the plant Arabidopsis thaliana produces (+)-alpha-barbatene, (+)-thujopsene and (+)-beta-chamigrene.
