Baccharis oxide synthase (EC 5.4.99.51) is an enzyme with systematic name (3S)-2,3-epoxy-2,3-dihydrosqualene mutase (cyclizing, baccharis-oxide-forming).[1] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

(3S)-2,3-epoxy-2,3-dihydrosqualene baccharis oxide

The enzyme from Stevia rebaudiana also gives traces of other triterpenoids.
