Accession
GO:0004161
Name
dimethylallyltranstransferase activity
Ontology
molecular_function
Synonyms
(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate synthetase activity, DMAPP:IPP-dimethylallyltransferase activity, dimethylallyl-diphosphate:isopentenyl-diphosphate dimethylallyltranstransferase activity, dimethylallyltransferase activity, diprenyltransferase activity, geranyl diphosphate synthase, geranyl pyrophosphate synthase activity, geranyl pyrophosphate synthetase activity, trans-farnesyl pyrophosphate synthetase activity, geranyl-diphosphate synthase activity
Definition
Catalysis of the reaction: dimethylallyl diphosphate + isopentenyl diphosphate = diphosphate + geranyl diphosphate. Source: EC:2.5.1.1
Comment
Note that this is the first step in the formation of farnesyl diphosphate. The second step is 'geranyltranstransferase activity ; GO:0004337'. Consider also annotating to the biological process term 'farnesyl diphosphate biosynthetic process ; GO:0045337'.
