A novel prenyltransferase, farnesylgeranyl diphosphate (FGPP) synthase (EC 2.5.1.X), which synthesizes C25-prenyl diphosphate, was found in the haloalkaliphilic archaeon Natronobacterium pharaonis. It was separated from geranylgeranyl diphosphate (GGPP) synthase (EC 2.5.1.29), which synthesizes C20-prenyl diphosphate, a major prenyltransferase in this… CONTINUE READING
