Acyltransferases;
Transferring groups other than aminoacyl groups
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
acetyl-CoA:benzylalcohol O-acetyltransferase
Reaction(IUBMB)
(1) acetyl-CoA + benzyl alcohol = CoA + benzyl acetate [RN:R10473];
(2) acetyl-CoA + cinnamyl alcohol = CoA + cinnamyl acetate [RN:R10474]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
acetyl-CoA [CPD:C00024];
benzyl alcohol [CPD:C00556];
cinnamyl alcohol [CPD:C02394]
Product
CoA [CPD:C00010];
benzyl acetate [CPD:C15513];
cinnamyl acetate [CPD:C12299]
Comment
The enzyme is found in flowers like Clarkia breweri, where it is important for floral scent production. Unlike EC 2.3.1.84, alcohol O-acetyltransferase, this enzyme is active with alcohols that contain a benzyl ring.
History
