5-epi-alpha-selinene synthase (EC 4.2.3.90, 8a-epi-alpha-selinene synthase, NP1) is an enzyme with systematic name (2Z,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase (cyclizing, 5-epi-alpha-selinene-forming).[1] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate 5-epi-alpha-selinene + diphosphate

This enzyme requires Mg2+.
