IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 2.3.1.224

Names

Accepted name:
acetyl-CoA-benzylalcohol acetyltransferase
Other name:
BEAT
Systematic name:
acetyl-CoA:benzylalcohol O-acetyltransferase

Reactions

Comments:

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.
