ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Geranylgeranyl diphosphate diphosphatase.
Alternative Name(s)
Geranylgeranyl diphosphate phosphatase.
Reaction catalysed
Geranylgeranyl diphosphate + H(2)O <=> geranylgeraniol + diphosphate
  • Involved in the biosynthesis of plaunotol.
  • There are two isoenzymes with different ion requirements.
  • Neither require Mg(2+) but in addition PII is inhibited by Zn(2+), Mn(2+) and Co(2+).
  • It is not known which isoenzyme is involved in plaunotol biosynthesis.
