ENZYME entry: EC 2.5.1.41

Accepted Name
Phosphoglycerol geranylgeranyltransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
(S)-3-O-geranylgeranylglyceryl phosphate synthase.
GGGP synthase.
GGGPS.
Reaction catalysed
Geranylgeranyl diphosphate + sn-glycerol 1-phosphate <=> diphosphate + sn-3-O-(geranylgeranyl)glycerol 1-phosphate
Cofactor(s)
Mg(2+).
Comment(s)
  • Catalyzes the first pathway-specific step in the biosynthesis of the core membrane diether lipids in archaebacteria.
  • It catalyzes the alkylation of the primary hydroxy group in sn-glycerol 1-phosphate by geranylgeranyl diphosphate (GGPP) in a prenyltransfer reaction where a hydroxy group is the nucleophile in the acceptor substrate.
  • The other enzymes involved in the biosynthesis of polar lipids in archaea are EC 1.1.1.261, EC 2.5.1.42 and EC 2.7.7.67, which lead to the formation of CDP-unsaturated archaeol.
  • The final step in the pathway involves the addition of L-serine, with concomitant removal of CMP, leading to the production of unsaturated archaetidylserine.
