Accepted name: 5,10-dihydrophenazine-1-carboxylate 9-dimethylallyltransferase

Reaction: prenyl diphosphate + 5,10-dihydrophenazine-1-carboxylate = diphosphate + 9-prenyl-5,10-dihydrophenazine-1-carboxylate

Glossary: 9-prenyl-5,10-dihydrophenazine-1-carboxylate = 9-(3-methylbut-2-en-1-yl)-5,10-dihydrophenazine-1-carboxylate

Other name(s): PpzP; dihydrophenazine-1-carboxylate dimethylallyltransferase; 5,10-dihydrophenazine 1-carboxylate dimethylallyltransferase; dimethylallyl diphosphate:5,10-dihydrophenazine-1-carboxylate 9-dimethylallyltransferase

Systematic name: prenyl-diphosphate:5,10-dihydrophenazine-1-carboxylate 9-prenyltransferase

Comments: The enzyme is involved in the biosynthesis of prenylated phenazines by the bacterium Streptomyces anulatus. It is specific for both prenyl diphosphate and 5,10-dihydrophenazine-1-carboxylate.
