This feature is part of a subsystem
  • In Polyprenyl Diphosphate Biosynthesis its role is Dehydrosqualene desaturase (EC 1.14.99.-) (Diapophytoene desaturase) (4,4'-diapophytoene desaturase).
  • Reasons for Current Assignment

    The encoded protein plays multiple roles which are implemented by the same domain with a broad specificity. The roles are "4,4'-diapophytoene desaturase (4,4'-diapolycopene-forming) (EC" and "Dehydrosqualene desaturase (EC CrtN". The protein occurs in 1 subsystem: "Polyprenyl Diphosphate Biosynthesis". The function of this gene is asserted in 11566453, 16020541, 10498735 and 8002598.

    Compare Regions For fig|426430.8.peg.2671

    The chromosomal region of the focus gene (top) is compared with four similar organisms. The graphic is centered on the focus gene, which is red and numbered 1. Sets of genes with similar sequence are grouped with the same number and color. Genes whose relative position is conserved in at least four other species are functionally coupled and share gray background boxes. The size of the region and the number of genomes may be reset. Click on any arrow in the display to refocus the comparison on that gene. The focus gene always points to the right, even if it is located on the minus strand.
