Accepted name: phosphoglycerol geranylfarnesyltransferase
Reaction: all-trans-pentaprenyl diphosphate + sn-glycerol 1-phosphate = sn-3-O-(farnesylgeranyl)glycerol 1-phosphate + diphosphate
Other name(s): GFGP synthase
Systematic name: all-trans pentaprenyl diphosphate:sn-glycerol-1-phosphate pentaprenyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the archaeon Aeropyrum pernix, catalyses the first pathway-specific step in the biosynthesis of the core membrane C25,C25-diether lipids in some archaea. It does not act on geranylgeranyl diphosphate. cf. EC, phosphoglycerol geranylgeranyltransferase.
