Reaction(IUBMB)
C30 botryococcene + NADP+ + diphosphate = presqualene diphosphate + NADPH + H+ [RN:R10194]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
C30 botryococcene [CPD:C20432];
NADP+ [CPD:C00006];
diphosphate [CPD:C00013]
Product
presqualene diphosphate [CPD:C03428];
NADPH [CPD:C00005];
H+ [CPD:C00080]
Comment
Isolated from the green alga Botryococcus braunii BOT22. Acts in the reverse direction. Involved in the production of botryococcenes, which are triterpenoid hydrocarbons of isoprenoid origin produced in large amount by this alga.
