Abstract

Dimethylallyl- and geranyl methylenediphosphonate are active as artificial substrates for farnesyl diphosphate synthase to give E,E-farnesyl diphosphate. By comparing the kinetic data obtained with the analogues and the natural substrates, the significance of the diphosphate moiety of the substrates of prenyltransferase is discussed.
