Accepted name: homogentisate solanesyltransferase
Reaction: all-trans-nonaprenyl diphosphate + homogentisate = diphosphate + 2-methyl-6-all-trans-nonaprenylbenzene-1,4-diol + CO2

Glossary: 2-methyl-6-all-trans-nonaprenylbenzene-1,4-diol = 2-methyl-6-solanesylbenzene-1,4-diol = MSBQ
Other name(s): HST; PDS2 (gene name)
Systematic name: all-trans-nonaprenyl diphosphate:homogentisate nonaprenyltransferase
Comments: Requires Mg2+ for activity. Part of the biosynthesis pathway of plastoquinol-9. The enzymes purified from the plant Arabidopsis thaliana and the alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii are also active in vitro with unsaturated C10-C20 prenyl diphosphates, producing main products that are not decarboxylated [2].
