Accepted name: 7-dimethylallyltryptophan synthase
Reaction: prenyl diphosphate + L-tryptophan = diphosphate + 7-prenyl-L-tryptophan
Glossary: prenyl = 3-methylbut-2-en-1-yl
Other name(s): 7-DMATS; dimethylallyl-diphosphate:L-tryptophan 7-dimethylallyltransferase
Systematic name: prenyl-diphosphate:L-tryptophan 7-prenyltransferase
Comments: This enzyme is more flexible towards the aromatic substrate than EC (4-dimethylallyltryptophan synthase), but similar to that enzyme, accepts only prenyl diphosphate as the prenyl donor.
