Protein existenceInferred from homology

General annotation (Comments)

Function

Catalyzes the condensation of 2 two farnesyl pyrophosphate moieties to form squalene. It is the first committed enzyme of the sterol biosynthesis pathway. Required for the biosynthesis of ergosterol By similarity.

Catalytic activity

2 farnesyl diphosphate + NAD(P)H = squalene + 2 diphosphate + NAD(P)+.

Cofactor

Magnesium By similarity.

Pathway

Terpene metabolism; lanosterol biosynthesis; lanosterol from farnesyl diphosphate: step 1/3.

Subcellular location

Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein By similarity.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the phytoene/squalene synthase family.
