10-epi-gamma-eudesmol synthase (EC 4.2.3.84) is an enzyme with systematic name (2E,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase (10-epi-gamma-eudesmol-forming).[1] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction:

(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate + H2O 10-epi-gamma-eudesmol + diphosphate

The recombinant enzyme from ginger (Zingiber zerumbet) forms beta-eudesmol, 10-epi-gamma-eudesmol, alpha-eudesmol and aristolene.
