ENZYME entry: EC 2.5.1.67

Accepted Name
Chrysanthemyl diphosphate synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
CPPase.
Reaction catalysed
2 dimethylallyl diphosphate <=> diphosphate + chrysanthemyl diphosphate
Cofactor(s)
Mn(2+) or Mg(2+).
Comment(s)
  • Chrysanthemyl diphosphate is a monoterpene with a non-head-to-tail linkage; it is unlike most monoterpenoids, which are derived from geranyl diphosphate and have isoprene units that are linked head- to-tail.
  • The mechanism of its formation is similar to that of the early steps of squalene and phytoene biosynthesis.
  • Chrysanthemyl diphosphate is the precursor of chrysanthemic acid, the acid half of the pyrethroid insecticides found in chrysanthemums.
