Terpene synthases catalyze the first committed steps in the biosynthesis of monoterpenes, sesquiterpenes, and diterpenes. An overview is presented of the enzymology and mechanism of these terpene synthases, and their molecular cloning, expression, and sequence analysis. Detailed structural and functional evaluation of four representative monoterpene, sesquiterpene, and diterpene synthases is also presented.
