Dimethylallyltranstransferase is an enzyme that converts dimethylallylpyrophosphate and isopentenyl pyrophosphate into farnesylpyrophosphate. It is also referred to as farnesylpyrophosphate synthase or farnesyldiphosphate synthase.

Pyrophosphate is also involved, both as a reactant and product. Geranylpyrophosphate is created in an intermediate step.
