  • FunctionKey enzyme in isoprenoid biosynthesis which catalyzes the formation of farnesyl diphosphate (FPP), a precursor for several classes of essential metabolites including sterols, dolichols, carotenoids, and ubiquinones. FPP also serves as substrate for protein farnesylation and geranylgeranylation. Catalyzes the sequential condensation of isopentenyl pyrophosphate with the allylic pyrophosphates, dimethylallyl pyrophosphate, and then with the resultant geranylpyrophosphate to the ultimate product farnesyl pyrophosphate.
  • PathwayIsoprenoid biosynthesis; farnesyl diphosphate biosynthesis; farnesyl diphosphate from geranyl diphosphate and isopentenyl diphosphate: step 1/1.
    Isoprenoid biosynthesis; geranyl diphosphate biosynthesis; geranyl diphosphate from dimethylallyl diphosphate and isopentenyl diphosphate: step 1/1.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the FPP/GGPP synthase family.

    Predicted band size : 41 kDa
    Observed band size : 44 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
  • Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of human hepatocarcinoma tissue labelling FDPS with ab38854. A peroxidase-conjugated anti-rabbit IgG was used as the secondary antibody, followed by DAB staining.
