  • To further define specific structural and mechanistic differences among monoterpene synthases from divergent plant sources, the stereospecificity of the enzyme-catalyzed isomerization of geranyl pyrophosphate to linalyl pyrophosphate and the subsequent cyclization to monoterpene olefins (which have been well established for monoterpene synthases from herbaceous angiosperms) were examined for monoterpene synthases from a conifer, lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta). The chiral monoterpenes isolated… CONTINUE READING
