Conserved Site

Di-trans-poly-cis-decaprenylcistransferase-like, conserved site (IPR018520)

Short name: UPP_synth-like_CS


Synonym(s): Di-trans-poly-cis-undecaprenyl-diphosphate synthase, Undecaprenyl pyrophosphate synthetase, Undecaprenyl pyrophosphate synthase, UPP synthetase

Di-trans-poly-cis-decaprenylcistransferase (EC: (UPP synthetase) generates undecaprenyl pyrophosphate (UPP) from isopentenyl pyrophosphate (IPP) [PMID: 9882662]. This bacterial enzyme is also found in archaebacteria and in a number of uncharacterised proteins including some from yeasts.

This conserved pattern is found towards the C-terminal region in many of the proteins in this entry. The proteins are of about 26 to 40 kDa whose central region is well conserved. This pattern also hits related enzymes such as dehydrodolichyl diphosphate synthase.
