I'm not sure, but I don't think they are commercially available yet.  You
could try contacting authors if you don't need too much.  Scientists in
the field who might be able to help you include:  Patrick J. Casey (Chen,
W.-J. et al. (1993) J. Biol. Chem. 268:9675-9680);  Michael S. Brown and
Joseph L. Goldstein (Reiss, Y. et al.(1990) Cell 62:81-88. ; Seabra, M.C.
et al. (1992) J. Biol. Chem. 267:14497-14503);  M.H. Gelb (Yokoyama,K.
and  M.H. Gelb (1993) J. Biol. Chem. 268:4055-4060).  Note, there are two
distinct geranylgeranyl transferase enzymes (I and II).
