Official Full Name
protein geranylgeranyltransferase type I, beta subunit
Protein geranylgeranyltransferase type I (GGTase-I) transfers a geranylgeranyl group to the cysteine residue of;candidate proteins containing a C-terminal CAAX motif in which A is an aliphatic amino acid and X is leucine;(summarized by Zhang et al., 1994 (PubMed 8106351)). The enzyme is composed of a 48-kD alpha subunit (FNTA; MIM;134635) and a 43-kD beta subunit, encoded by the PGGT1B gene. The FNTA gene encodes the alpha subunit for both;GGTase-I and the related enzyme farnesyltransferase.
