Summaries for IDI2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for IDI2 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene catalyzes the conversion of isopentenyl diphosphate to dimethylallyl diphosphate, which is a precursor for the synthesis of cholesterol and other isoprenoids. This gene, which is a product of an ancestral gene duplication event, encodes a protein that may be involved in the aggregation of alpha-synuclein in the cerebral cortex of patients with Lewy body disease. In addition, segmental copy number gains in this locus have been associated with sporadic amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2016]

GeneCards Summary for IDI2 Gene

IDI2 (Isopentenyl-Diphosphate Delta Isomerase 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Terpenoid backbone biosynthesis and Metabolism. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include hydrolase activity and isopentenyl-diphosphate delta-isomerase activity. An important paralog of this gene is IDI1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for IDI2 Gene

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