(+)-alpha-barbatene synthase (EC, AtBS) is an enzyme with systematic name (2E,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase ((+)-alpha-barbatene-forming). This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate (+)-alpha-barbatene + diphosphate

The recombinant enzyme from the plant Arabidopsis thaliana produces alpha-barbatene, thujopsene and beta-chamigrene.
