A new prenyltransferase which catalyzes the synthesis of geranyl pyrophosphate as the only product from dimethylallyl pyrophosphate and isopentenyl pyrophosphate has been separated from other known prenyltransferases from Micrococcus lysodeikticus. This enzyme fraction is also capable of synthesizing all-trans geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate from farnesyl pyrophosphate and isopentenyl pyrophosphate though it lacks ability to synthesize farnesyl pyrophosphate.
