Chemical synthesis of different S-forms of dolichyl-P was performed in order to investigate the use of these polyprenes in mannosyl, glucosyl and glucosaminyl transferase reactions. Determination of the Vmax values for a series of dolichyl-P demonstrated that the velocities of transferase reactions with all those dolichyl-P derivatives present in animal tissues are largely the same. The apparent Km values for the various dolichyl-P in the transferase system studied differed, but this property does not appear to have physiological importance.
