Cis-abienol synthase (EC 4.2.3.140, Z-abienol synthase, CAS, ABS) is an enzyme with systematic name (13E)-8alpha-hydroxylabd-13-en-15-yl-diphosphate-lyase (cis-abienol forming).[1][2] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

(13E)-8alpha-hydroxylabd-13-en-15-yl diphosphate cis-abienol + diphosphate

This enzyme is isolated from the plants Abies balsamea (balsam fir) and Nicotiana tabacum (tobacco).
