ENZYME entry: EC 2.5.1.148

Accepted Name
Lycopaoctaene synthase.
Reaction catalysed
2 geranylgeranyl diphosphate + NADPH <=> lycopaoctaene + 2 diphosphate + NADP(+)
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, characterized from the green microalga Botryococcus braunii race L, in involved in biosynthesis of (14E,18E)-lycopadiene.
  • In vitro, the enzyme can accept (2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate and phytyl diphosphate as substrates, and is also able to catalyze the condensation of two different substrate molecules, forming chimeric products.
  • However, the use of these alternative substrates is not significant in vivo.
