(1) acetyl-CoA + benzyl alcohol = CoA + benzyl acetate [RN:
(2) acetyl-CoA + cinnamyl alcohol = CoA + cinnamyl acetate [RN:
The enzyme is found in flowers like Clarkia breweri, where it is important for floral scent production. Unlike EC
, alcohol O-acetyltransferase, this enzyme is active with alcohols that contain a benzyl ring.
