ENZYME entry: EC 2.5.1.83

Accepted Name
Hexaprenyl-diphosphate synthase ((2E,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate specific).
Alternative Name(s)
Hexaprenyl diphosphate synthase.
Hexaprenyl pyrophosphate synthetase.
HexPS.
Reaction catalysed
(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate + 3 isopentenyl diphosphate <=> 3 diphosphate + all-trans-hexaprenyl diphosphate
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme prefers farnesyl diphosphate to geranylgeranyl diphosphate as an allylic substrate and does not show activity for geranyl diphosphate and dimethylallyl diphosphate.
  • Formerly EC 2.5.1.33.
