Protein

15-cis-phytoene synthase

Gene

crtB

Organism
Synechocystis sp. (strain PCC 6803 / Kazusa)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Involved in the biosynthesis of carotenoids. Catalyzes the condensation of two molecules of geranylgeranyl diphosphate (GGPP) to give prephytoene diphosphate (PPPP) and the subsequent rearrangement of the cyclopropylcarbinyl intermediate to yield 15-cis-phytoene.1 Publication

Caution

The enzyme produces 15-cis-phytoene. The conversion to all-trans-phytoene is due to photoisomerisation.By similarity

Catalytic activityi

2 geranylgeranyl diphosphate = 15-cis-phytoene + 2 diphosphate.1 Publication

Cofactori

Protein has several cofactor binding sites:
  • ATPBy similarityNote: ATP is required for the transferase activity but it does not seem to be hydrolyzed during the reaction.By similarity
  • Mn2+By similarity, Mg2+By similarity
