2Z,6Z-Farnesyl Diphosphate

Catalog No.:  I-0170
MW: 433.4
CAS: 27248-37-9

Description:  Isoprenoid compounds are a diverse group of natural products which are essential components in all cells. Isoprenoids are biosynthesized from the simple precursors isopentenyl diphosphate (IPP) and dimethylallyl diphosphate (DMAPP). Eukaryotes, fungi, and some gram-positive bacteria produce IPP through the mevalonate (MVA) pathway whereas gram-negative and some gram-positive bacteria utilize the non-mevalonate or 2-C-methyl-D-erythritol-4-phosphate (MEP) pathway. 2Z,6Z-Farnesyl diphosphate is synthesized by Z-farnesyl diphosphate synthase (M. tuberculosis) from neryl diphosphate.  It is not a substrate for protein-farnesyl transferase.
