hydroxycinnamoyl coenzyme A-quinate transferase
Transferring groups other than aminoacyl groups
feruloyl-CoA + quinate = CoA + O-feruloylquinate [RN:
Caffeoyl-CoA and 4-coumaroyl-CoA can also act as donors, but more slowly. Involved in the biosynthesis of chlorogenic acid in sweet potato and, with EC
chlorogenate---glucarate O-hydroxycinnamoyltransferase, in the formation of caffeoyl-CoA in tomato.
