Term Information

Accession
GO:0004311
Name
farnesyltranstransferase activity
Ontology
molecular_function
Synonyms
geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate synthase activity, geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate synthetase activity, geranylgeranyl-PP synthetase activity, geranylgeranyl-diphosphate synthase activity, trans,trans-farnesyl-diphosphate:isopentenyl-diphosphate farnesyltranstransferase activity, farnesyltransferase activity
Alternate IDs
None
Definition
Catalysis of the reaction: 2-trans,6-trans-farnesyl diphosphate + isopentenyl diphosphate = diphosphate + geranylgeranyl diphosphate. Source: EC:2.5.1.29, RHEA:17653
Comment
The catalyzed reaction forms (free) geranylgeranyl diphosphate. There is no relationship between this activity and protein farnesyltransferase activity, GO:0004660, where the catalyzed reaction transfers a farnesyl group from farnesyl diphosphate to a target protein.
