Beta-copaene synthase (EC 4.2.3.127, cop4) is an enzyme with systematic name (2E,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase (cyclizing, beta-copaene-forming).[1][2][3] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate beta-copaene + diphosphate

This enzyme is isolated from the fungus Coprinus cinereus.
