Reaction: prenyl diphosphate + L-tyrosine = diphosphate + 4-O-prenyl-L-tyrosine
Other name(s): SirD; dimethylallyl diphosphate:L-tyrosine 4-O-dimethylallyltransferase
Systematic name: prenyl-diphosphate:L-tyrosine 4-O-prenyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme is involved in biosynthesis of the phytotoxin sirodesmin PL by the phytopathogenic ascomycete Leptosphaeria maculans.
