Accepted name: adenylate dimethylallyltransferase (ADP/ATP-dependent)
Reaction: (1) prenyl diphosphate + ADP = diphosphate + N6-prenyladenosine 5′-diphosphate
(2) prenyl diphosphate + ATP = diphosphate + N6-prenyladenosine 5′-triphosphate

Other name(s): cytokinin synthase (ambiguous); isopentenyltransferase (ambiguous); 2-isopentenyl-diphosphate:ADP/ATP Δ2-isopentenyltransferase; adenylate isopentenyltransferase (ambiguous); dimethylallyl diphosphate:ATP/ADP isopentenyltransferase: IPT; dimethylallyl-diphosphate:ADP/ATP dimethylallyltransferase
Systematic name: prenyl-diphosphate:ADP/ATP prenyltransferase
Comments: Involved in the biosynthesis of cytokinins in plants. The IPT4 isoform from the plant Arabidopsis thaliana is specific for ADP and ATP [1]. Other isoforms, such as IPT1 from Arabidopsis thaliana [1,2] and the enzyme from the common hop, Humulus lupulus [3], also have a lower activity with AMP (cf. EC, adenylate dimethylallyltransferase).
