MetaCyc Enzyme: ω,E,E-farnesyl diphosphate synthase

Gene: Rv3398c Accession Number: G-11697 (MetaCyc)

Species: Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv

Summary:
ω,E,E-farnesyl diphosphate synthase, encoded by the Rv3398c gene of Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv, is a unique bacterial enzyme that has a structural motif similar to that of the type I geranylgeranyl diphosphate synthase found in Archaea.

The Rv3398c gene was cloned and expressed in Mycobacterium smegmatis, and the recombinant protein was purified to near homogeneity [Dhiman04].

From the substrates that were tested, only geranyl diphosphate served as an acceptor for isopentenyl diphosphate. The enzyme has an absolute requirement for divalent cation. Mg2+ was preferable, but Mn2+ and Fe2+ could support catalysis, at lower rates [Dhiman04].

Molecular Weight of Polypeptide: 38.852 kD (from nucleotide sequence)
