Entry
EC 2.1.1.65                 Enzyme                                 

Name
licodione 2'-O-methyltransferase
Class
Transferases;
Transferring one-carbon groups;
Methyltransferases
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
S-adenosyl-L-methionine:licodione 2'-O-methyltransferase
Reaction(IUBMB)
S-adenosyl-L-methionine + licodione = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + 2'-O-methyllicodione [RN:R03623]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
S-adenosyl-L-methionine [CPD:C00019];
licodione [CPD:C01592]
Product
S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine [CPD:C00021];
2'-O-methyllicodione [CPD:C02922]
Comment
As well as licodione [1-(2,4-dihydroxyphenyl)-3-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-1,3-propanedione], the 2''-hydroxy-derivative and isoliquiritigenin can act as acceptors, but more slowly.
History
