Geranylgeranyltransferase type 1 or simply geranylgeranyltransferase is one of the three enzymes in the prenyltransferase group. In specific terms, Geranylgeranyltransferase (GGTase 1) adds a 20-carbon isoprenoid called a geranylgeranyl group to proteins bearing a CaaX motif:a four-amino acid sequence at the carboxyl terminal of a protein. Geranylgeranyltransferase inhibitors are being investigated as anti-cancer agents.

One unit will transfer one nanomole of geranylgeranyl isoprenoid to H-Ras (CVLL isoform) per hour at pH 8.0 at 37°C.
Solution in 50 mM Tris, pH 7.5, 1 mM DTT, and 0.2 mM octylglucoside.
Host cells were coinfected with the α subunit of farnesyl transferase and the β subunit of geranylgeranyltransferase I.
