EC 2.5.1.116 is Orphan !
Common name :Homogentisate geranylgeranyltransferase

Systematic name :Geranylgeranyl diphosphate:homogentisate geranylgeranyltransferase

Other names :HGGT
Slr1736 (gene name)
Cofactors : Magnesium.

Comments :Requires Mg(2+) for activity. Involved in the biosynthesis of the vitamin E, tocotrienols. While the enzyme from the bacterium Synechocystis PCC 6803 has higher activity with phytyl diphosphate (EC 2.5.1.115, homogentisate phytyltransferase), the enzymes from barley, rice and wheat have only a low activity with that substrate (2).
