Summaries for IDI1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for IDI1 Gene

  • IDI1 encodes a peroxisomally-localized enzyme that catalyzes the interconversion of isopentenyl diphosphate (IPP) to its highly electrophilic isomer, dimethylallyl diphosphate (DMAPP), which are the substrates for the successive reaction that results in the synthesis of farnesyl diphosphate and, ultimately, cholesterol. It has been shown in peroxisomal deficiency diseases such as Zellweger syndrome and neonatal adrenoleukodystrophy that there is reduction in IPP isomerase activity. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for IDI1 Gene

IDI1 (Isopentenyl-Diphosphate Delta Isomerase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with IDI1 include neonatal adrenoleukodystrophy. Among its related pathways are Regulation of Cholesterol Biosynthesis by SREBP (SREBF) and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include magnesium ion binding and manganese ion binding. An important paralog of this gene is IDI2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for IDI1 Gene

  • Catalyzes the 1,3-allylic rearrangement of the homoallylic substrate isopentenyl (IPP) to its highly electrophilic allylic isomer, dimethylallyl diphosphate (DMAPP).
