NBD-GPP is a fluorescent analog of geranyl pyrophosphate (GPP). It serves as lipid donor for farnesyltransferase (FTase) - one of the three mammalian protein prenyltransferases. The attachment of the NBD-geranyl group to protein substrates allows for efficient fluorescence based FTase activity assays and inhibitor screening.
