General annotation (Comments)

Function

Catalyzes the cyclization of the ubiquitous isoprenoid intermediate geranylgeranyl diphosphate to taxa-4,11-diene, the parent olefin with a taxane skeleton.

Catalytic activity

Geranylgeranyl diphosphate = taxa-4,11-diene + diphosphate.

Cofactor

Binds 3 magnesium ions per subunit By similarity.

Pathway

Alkaloid biosynthesis; taxol biosynthesis; taxa-4(20),11-dien-5alpha-ol from geranylgeranyl diphosphate: step 1/2.

Domain

The Asp-Asp-Xaa-Xaa-Asp/Glu (DDXXD/E) motif is important for the catalytic activity, presumably through binding to Mg2+.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the terpene synthase family.
