all- trans-decaprenyl-diphosphate synthase
E,6 E)-farnesyl diphosphate + 7 isopentenyl diphosphate = 7 diphosphate + all- trans-decaprenyl diphosphate
For diagram of terpenoid biosynthesis,
Other name(s): decaprenyl-diphosphate synthase; decaprenyl pyrophosphate synthetase; polyprenylpyrophosphate synthetase; terpenoidallyltransferase; terpenyl pyrophosphate synthetase;
Systematic name: (2
E,6 E)-farnesyl-diphosphate:isopentenyl-diphosphate farnesyl transtransferase (adding 7 isopentenyl units)
Comments: This enzyme catalyses the condensation reactions resulting in the formation of
all- trans-decaprenyl diphosphate, the isoprenoid side chain of ubiquinone-10 and menaquinone-10. The enzyme adds seven isopentenyl diphosphate molecules sequentially to farnesyl diphosphate with trans stereochemistry.
