ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
1,4-dihydroxy-2-naphthoate polyprenyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
An all-trans-polyprenyl diphosphate + 1,4-dihydroxy-2-naphthoate <=> a demethylmenaquinol + diphosphate + CO(2)
  • This enzyme catalyzes a step in the synthesis of menaquinone, in which the prenyl chain synthesized by polyprenyl diphosphate synthase is transferred to 1,4-dihydroxy-2-naphthoate (DHNA).
  • The bacterial enzyme is an inner membrane protein, with the C-terminus located in the periplasm.
  • It is highly specific for DHNA but not for a specific length of the prenyl chain.
