IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 2.7.8.39

Names

Accepted name:
archaetidylinositol phosphate synthase
Other name:
AIP synthase
Systematic name:
CDP-2,3-bis-(O-phytanyl)-sn-glycerol:1L-myo-inositol 1-phosphate 1-sn-archaetidyltransferase

Reaction

Cofactor

Comments:

Requires Mg2+ or Mn2+ for activity. The enzyme is involved in biosynthesis of archaetidyl-myo-inositol, a compound essential for glycolipid biosynthesis in archaea.
