(S)-beta-bisabolene synthase (EC 4.2.3.55) is an enzyme with systematic name (2E,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase ((S)-beta-bisabolene-forming). This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate (S)-beta-bisabolene + diphosphate

The synthesis of (S)-beta-macrocarpene from (2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate proceeds in two steps.
