A new class EC 7, Translocases, has been added to the EC list. It will be part of ENZYME from release 2018_10. Read more about EC 7 here.

ENZYME entry: EC 2.5.1.31

Accepted Name
Ditrans,polycis-undecaprenyl-diphosphate synthase ((2E,6E)-farnesyl- diphosphate specific).
Alternative Name(s)
Bactoprenyl-diphosphate synthase.
Ditrans,polycis-undecaprenyl-diphosphate synthase.
Ditrans,polycis-undecaprenylcistransferase.
Undecaprenyl pyrophosphate synthase.
Undecaprenyl pyrophosphate synthetase.
Undecaprenyl-diphosphate synthase.
UPP synthetase.
Reaction catalysed
(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate + 8 isopentenyl diphosphate <=> 8 diphosphate + di-trans,octa-cis-undecaprenyl diphosphate
Comment(s)
Undecaprenyl pyrophosphate synthase catalyzes the consecutive condensation reactions of a farnesyl diphosphate with eight isopentenyl diphosphates, in which new cis-double bonds are formed, to generate undecaprenyl diphosphate that serves as a lipid carrier for peptidoglycan synthesis of bacterial cell wall.
