General annotation (Comments)

Function

Catalyzes the sequential condensation of isopentenyl pyrophosphate with the allylic pyrophosphates, dimethylallyl pyrophosphate, and then with the resultant geranylpyrophosphate to the ultimate product farnesyl pyrophosphate.

Catalytic activity

Dimethylallyl diphosphate + isopentenyl diphosphate = diphosphate + geranyl diphosphate.

Geranyl diphosphate + isopentenyl diphosphate = diphosphate + (2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate.

Cofactor

Binds 3 magnesium ions per subunit By similarity.

Pathway

Isoprenoid biosynthesis; farnesyl diphosphate biosynthesis; farnesyl diphosphate from geranyl diphosphate and isopentenyl diphosphate: step 1/1.

Isoprenoid biosynthesis; geranyl diphosphate biosynthesis; geranyl diphosphate from dimethylallyl diphosphate and isopentenyl diphosphate: step 1/1.

Subcellular location

Cytoplasm.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the FPP/GGPP synthase family.
