EC 2.5.1.137

Accepted name: 2-acyl-4-prenylphloroglucinol 6-prenyltransferase

Reaction: (1) dimethylallyl diphosphate + a 2-acyl-4-prenylphloroglucinol = diphosphate + a 2-acyl-4,6-bisprenylphloroglucinol
(2) dimethylallyl diphosphate + a 2-acyl-4,6-bisprenylphloroglucinol = diphosphate + a a 2-acyl-4,6,6-trisprenylcyclohexa-2,4-dien-1-one

Glossary: a 2-acyl-4,6,6-triprenylphloroglucinol = a β bitter acid

Other name(s): PT2 (gene name); aromatic prenyltransferase (ambiguous)

Systematic name: dimethylallyl-diphosphate:2-acyl-4-prenylphloroglucinol 6-dimethylallyltransferase

Comments: The enzyme, characterized from hop (Humulus lupulus), catalyses two successive prenylations of a 2-acyl-4-prenylphloroglucinol during the synthesis of bitter acids. Forms a complex with EC 2.5.1.136, 2-acylphloroglucinol 4-prenyltransferase, which catalyses the initial prenylation of the substrates. Requires Mg2+.
