Names

Accepted name:
4-coumaroyl-homoserine lactone synthase
Other names:
p-coumaryl-homoserine lactone synthase
RpaI
Systematic name:
4-coumaroyl-CoA:S-adenosyl-L-methionine trans-4-coumaroyltranserase (lactone-forming, methylthioadenosine-releasing)

Reaction

Comments:

The enzyme is found in the bacterium Rhodopseudomonas palustris, which produces N-(4-coumaroyl)-L-homoserine lactone as a quorum-sensing signal.
