Geranyl S-Thiolodiphosphate (GSPP)

Catalog No.:  I-S100
MW: 381.37
CAS: 373597-44-5

Description:  Geranyl thiolodiphosphate (GSPP) is an analog of GPP in which the non-bridging oxygen has been replaced by sulfur resulting in a less-reactive compound. GSPP is turned over by avian farnesyl diphosphate synthase (FPPase) more slowly than FPP and acts as a competitive inhibitor (KI = 24.8 μM).

Provided as the tris-ammonium salt
