  IntEnz view ENZYME view

ENZYME: 2.3.1.196


ID   2.3.1.196
DE   Benzyl alcohol O-benzoyltransferase.
CA   Benzoyl-CoA + benzyl alcohol = CoA + benzyl benzoate.
CC   -!- The enzyme is involved in volatile benzenoid and benzoic acid
CC       biosynthesis.
CC   -!- The enzyme from Petunia hybrida also catalyzes the formation of
CC       2-phenylethyl benzoate from benzoyl-CoA and 2-phenylethanol.
CC   -!- The apparent catalytic efficiency of the enzyme from Petunia hybrida
CC       with benzoyl-CoA is almost 6-fold higher than with acetyl-CoA.
