S-Linalool is one of the volatiles emitted by Clarkia breweri Grey [Green] flowers to attract its moth pollinator. S-Linalool synthase, the enzyme that stereoselectively converts the ubiquitous C10 intermediate GPP to S-linalool, is abundant in stigmata of freshly opened flowers, and it was purified to >95% homogeneity by anion-exchange and hydroxyapatite chromatography. S-Linalool synthase is operationally soluble as are other monoterpene synthases, has a K(m) of 0.9 μM for geranyl pyrophosphate, exhibits a strict requirement for a divalent metal cofactor with a preference for Mn2+ (K(m) = 45 μM), and shows an optimal pH of 7.4. The enzyme is active as a monomer of 76 ± 3 kDa as determined by gel permeation chromatography and polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Neither S- nor R-linalyl pyrophosphates are substrates for the C. breweri S-linalool synthase, although this tertiary allylic pyrophosphate ester is a bound intermediate in the biosynthesis of cyclic monoterpenes from geranyl pyrophosphate in many plant species, where it also serves as an alternate substrate.
