IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 2.1.1.154

Names

Accepted name:
isoliquiritigenin 2'-O-methyltransferase
Other names:
CHMT
chalcone OMT
Systematic name:
S-adenosyl-L-methionine:isoliquiritigenin 2'-O-methyltransferase

Reaction

Comments:

Not identical to EC 2.1.1.65, licodione 2'-O-methyltransferase [2]. While EC 2.1.1.154, isoliquiritigenin 2'-O-methyltransferase can use licodione as a substrate, EC 2.1.1.65 cannot use isoliquiritigenin as a substrate.
