Cucurbitadienol synthase (EC 5.4.99.33, CPQ (gene), (S)-2,3-epoxysqualene mutase (cyclizing, cucurbitadienol-forming)) is an enzyme with systematic name (3S)-2,3-epoxy-2,3-dihydrosqualene mutase (cyclizing, cucurbitadienol-forming).[1] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

(3S)-2,3-epoxy-2,3-dihydrosqualene cucurbitadienol
