Accepted name: leachianone-G 2′′-dimethylallyltransferase
Reaction: dimethylallyl diphosphate + leachianone G = diphosphate + sophoraflavanone G

Glossary: leachianone G = (-)-(2S)-2′-hydroxy-8-dimethylallylnaringenin = (-)-(2S)-5,7-dihydroxy-8-(2-hydroxy-3-methylbut-2-enyl)-2-(4-hydroxyphenyl)chroman-4-one
sophoraflavanone G = 2-{[(2S)-2-(2,4-dihydroxyphenyl)-5,7-dihydroxy-4-oxo-chroman-8-yl]methyl}-5-methyl-hex-4-enoic acid
Other name(s): LG 2′′-dimethylallyltransferase; leachianone G 2′′-dimethylallyltransferase; LGDT
Systematic name: dimethylallyl-diphosphate:leachianone-G 2′′-dimethylallyltransferase
Comments: This membrane-bound enzyme is located in the plastids and requires Mg2+ for activity. The reaction forms the lavandulyl sidechain of sophoraflavanone G by transferring a dimethylallyl group to the 2′′ position of another dimethylallyl group attached at postiion 8 of leachianone G. The enzyme is specific for dimethylallyl diphosphate as the prenyl donor, as it cannot be replaced by isopentenyl diphosphate or geranyl diphosphate. Euchrenone a7 (a 5-deoxy derivative of leachianone G) and kenusanone I (a 7-methoxy derivative of leachianone G) can also act as substrates, but more slowly. Along with EC (8-dimethylallylnaringenin 2′-hydroxylase) and EC (naringenin 8-dimethylallyltransferase), this enzyme forms part of the sophoraflavanone-G-biosynthesis pathway.
