(E)-2-epi-beta-caryophyllene synthase (EC, 2-epi-(E)-beta-caryophyllene synthase, SmMTPSL26) is an enzyme with systematic name (2E,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase (cyclizing, (E)-2-epi-beta-caryophyllene-forming). This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate (E)-2-epi-beta-caryophyllene + diphosphate

This enzyme is isolated from the plant Selaginella moellendorffii.
