Accepted name: dimethylallylcistransferase
Reaction: prenyl diphosphate + 3-methyl-but-3-en-1-yl diphosphate = diphosphate + neryl diphosphate
Glossary: neryl = (2Z)-3,7-dimethylocta-2,6-dien-1-yl
Other name(s): neryl-diphosphate synthase; dimethylallyl-diphosphate:isopentenyl-diphosphate dimethylallylcistransferase
Systematic name: prenyl-diphosphate:3-methyl-but-3-en-1-yl-diphosphate prenylcistransferase
Comments: This enzyme will not use larger prenyl diphosphates as efficient donors.
