AF_0404

Gene
AF_0404
Protein
Digeranylgeranylglyceryl phosphate synthase
Organism
Archaeoglobus fulgidus (strain ATCC 49558 / VC-16 / DSM 4304 / JCM 9628 / NBRC 100126)
Length
293 amino acids
Function
Prenyltransferase that catalyzes the transfer of the geranylgeranyl moiety of geranylgeranyl diphosphate (GGPP) to the C2 hydroxyl of (S)-3-O-geranylgeranylglyceryl phosphate (GGGP). This reaction is the second ether-bond-formation step in the biosynthesis of archaeal membrane lipids.
Similarity
Belongs to the UbiA prenyltransferase family. DGGGP synthase subfamily.
