Additional Information
Additional Information
Delta-cadinene synthase is an enzyme involved in the biosynthesis of cadinane-type sesquiterpenes, such as gossypol, which provide constitutive and inducible protection against pests and diseases. The metabolite also causes cardio, hepato and reproductive toxicity in monogastric animals. Delta-cadinene synthase catalyzes  the cyclization of trans,trans-farnesyl diphosphate (FPP) to (+)-delta cadinene, which is the first committed step in gossypol synthesis.
