ENZYME entry: EC 2.5.1.81

Accepted Name
Geranylfarnesyl diphosphate synthase.

Comment(s)
  • The enzyme from Methanosarcina mazei is involved in biosynthesis of the polyprenyl side-chain of methanophenazine, an electron carrier utilized for methanogenesis.
  • It prefers geranylgeranyl diphosphate and farnesyl diphosphate as allylic substrate.
  • The enzyme from Aeropyrum pernix prefers farnesyl diphosphate as allylic substrate.
  • The enzyme is involved in the biosynthesis of C(25)-C(25) membrane lipids.
  • Formerly EC 2.5.1.n2.
