(-)-gamma-cadinene synthase ((2Z,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate cyclizing) (EC 4.2.3.62, (-)-gamma-cadinene cyclase) is an enzyme with systematic name (2Z,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase ((-)-gamma-cadinene-forming). This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

(2Z,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate (-)-gamma-cadinene + [diphosphate]

This enzyme is isolated from the liverwort Heteroscyphus planus.
