An enzyme that, in the pathway of cholesterol biosynthesis, catalyzes the condensation of isopentenyl pyrophosphate and dimethylallylpyrophosphate to yield pyrophosphate and geranylpyrophosphate. The enzyme then catalyzes the condensation of the latter compound with another molecule of isopentenyl pyrophosphate to yield pyrophosphate and farnesylpyrophosphate. EC 220.127.116.11.
- Dolichyl Phosphate Synthetase
- Nerylpyrophosphate Synthetase
- Synthetase, Nerylpyrophosphate
