Accepted name: trans,polycis-decaprenyl diphosphate synthase
Reaction: (2Z,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate + 7 isopentenyl diphosphate = 7 diphosphate + trans,octacis-decaprenyl diphosphate

Other name(s): Rv2361c; (2Z,6Z,10Z,14Z,18Z,22Z,26Z,30Z,34E)-decaprenyl diphosphate synthase
Systematic name: (2Z,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate:isopentenyl-diphosphate farnesylcistransferase (adding 7 isopentenyl units)
Comments: The enzyme is involved in the biosynthesis of decaprenyl phosphate, which plays a central role in the biosynthesis of essential mycobacterial cell wall components, such as the mycolyl-arabinogalactan-peptidoglycan complex and lipoarabinomannan [2].
