Chain elongation in the isoprenoid biosynthetic pathway.

Abstract

Isoprenyl diphosphate synthases catalyze addition of allylic diphosphate primers to the isoprene unit in isopentenyl diphosphate to produce polyisoprenoid diphosphates with well defined chain lengths. Phylogenetic correlations suggest that the synthases which catalyze formation of isoprenoid diphosphates with (E) double bonds have evolved from a common… (More)
