QuickView for FPS (gene)

Gene Symbol:
FDPS Homo sapiens Homo sapiens
Full name:
farnesyl diphosphate synthase
FPPS, FPS, POROK9, farnesyl pyrophosphate synthase, (2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate synthase, FPP synthase, FPP synthetase, farnesyl pyrophosphate synthetase, dimethylallyltranstransferase, geranyltranstransferase
Genomic Location:
Chr 1: 153545374-153557080
This gene encodes an enzyme that catalyzes the production of geranyl pyrophosphate and farnesyl pyrophosphate from isopentenyl pyrophosphate and dimethylallyl pyrophosphate. The resulting product, farnesyl pyrophosphate, is a key intermediate in cholesterol and sterol biosynthesis, a substrate for protein farnesylation and geranylgeranylation, and ...
