Comments [?]

case <OC:Gammaproteobacteria>
Function Catalyzes the sequential condensation of isopentenyl diphosphate (IPP) with (2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate (E,E-FPP) to yield (2Z,6Z,10Z,14Z,18Z,22Z,26Z,30Z,34E,38E)-undecaprenyl diphosphate (di-trans,octa-cis-UPP). UPP is the precursor of glycosyl carrier lipid in the biosynthesis of bacterial cell wall polysaccharide components such as peptidoglycan and lipopolysaccharide.
Catalytic activity (2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate + 8 isopentenyl diphosphate = 8 diphosphate + di-trans,octa-cis-undecaprenyl diphosphate.
else case <OC:Archaea>
Function Catalyzes the sequential condensation of isopentenyl diphosphate (IPP) with geranylgeranyl diphosphate (GGPP) to yield (2Z,6Z,10Z,14Z,18Z,22Z,26Z,30E,34E,38E)-undecaprenyl diphosphate (tritrans,heptacis-UPP). It is probably the precursor of glycosyl carrier lipids.
Catalytic activity Geranylgeranyl diphosphate + 7 isopentenyl diphosphate = 7 diphosphate + tritrans,heptacis-undecaprenyl diphosphate.
else
Function Catalyzes the condensation of isopentenyl diphosphate (IPP) with allylic pyrophosphates generating different type of terpenoids.

Comments Actinobacteria possess different types of isoprenyl transferases (decaprenyl diphosphate synthase; trans,polycis-decaprenyl diphosphate synthase; (2Z,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate synthase; trans,polycis-polyprenyl diphosphate synthase) which are all homologous to ISPT in primary sequence (and match the family MF_01139) but with a different substrate specificity (isoprenyl acceptor) and chain-length determination due to a few residues.
