Aromatic prenyltransferase, CloQ-type (IPR020965)

Short name: Prenyltransferase_CloQ

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



This entry includes prenyltransferase-like proteins, including:

  • Aromatic prenyltransferases NovQ from Streptomyces niveus and CloQ from Streptomyces roseochromogenes. They catalyse the transfer of a dimethylallyl group to 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate to produce the ring A structure in the novobiocin and clorobiocin biosynthesis pathways, respectively [PMID: 19557032, PMID: 12618544].
  • Flaviolin linalyltransferase from Streptomyces cinnamonensis. It is involved in the biosynthesis of furanonaphthoquinone I (FNQ I). It catalyses C- and O-prenylations of different phenolic substrates [PMID: 17103476, PMID: 17543953].
  • 5,10-dihydrophenazine-1-carboxylate 9-dimethylallyltransferase from Streptomyces anulatus. It is involved in the biosynthesis of prenylated phenazines. It catalyses the transfer of a dimethylallyl moiety to C-9 of 5,10-dihydrophenazine 1-carboxylate (dihydro-PCA). It is specific for both dimethylallyl diphosphate and dihydro-PCA [PMID: 19339241].
