BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
geranyl-diphosphate:olivetolate geranyltransferase
Reaction(IUBMB)
geranyl diphosphate + 2,4-dihydroxy-6-pentylbenzoate = diphosphate + cannabigerolate [RN:R10176]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
geranyl diphosphate [CPD:C00341];
2,4-dihydroxy-6-pentylbenzoate [CPD:C20417]
Product
diphosphate [CPD:C00013];
cannabigerolate [CPD:C20406]
Comment
Part of the cannabinoids biosynthetic pathway of the plant Cannabis sativa. The enzyme can also use neryl diphosphate as substrate, forming cannabinerolate.
