{{#invoke:Infobox|infobox}} Alpha-bisabolene synthase (EC, bisabolene synthase) is an enzyme with system name (2E,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase ((E)-alpha-bisabolene-forming).<ref>{{#invoke:Citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=journal }}</ref> This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate <math>\rightleftharpoons</math> (E)-alpha-bisabolene + diphosphate

This synthase requires a divalent cation cofactor (Mg2+ or, to a lesser extent, Mn2+) to neutralize the negative charge of the diphosphate leaving group.
