Term Information [More information on geranyltranstransferase activity]

Accession
GO:0004337
Name
geranyltranstransferase activity
Ontology
molecular_function
Synonyms
FPP synthetase activity, farnesyl diphosphate synthetase activity, farnesyl pyrophosphate synthetase activity, farnesyl-diphosphate synthase activity, farnesylpyrophosphate synthetase activity, geranyl-diphosphate:isopentenyl-diphosphate geranyltranstransferase activity, geranyltransferase activity, geranyl transferase I
Definition
Catalysis of the reaction: geranyl diphosphate + isopentenyl diphosphate = 2-trans,6-trans-farnesyl diphosphate + diphosphate. Source: RHEA:19364, EC:2.5.1.10
Comment
Note that this is the second step in the formation of farnesyl diphosphate. The first step is 'dimethylallyltransferase activity ; GO:0004161'. Consider also annotating to the biological process term 'farnesyl diphosphate biosynthetic process ; GO:0045337'.
