  IntEnz view ENZYME view

ENZYME: 2.3.1.224


ID   2.3.1.224
DE   Acetyl-CoA-benzylalcohol acetyltransferase.
CA   (1) Acetyl-CoA + benzyl alcohol = CoA + benzyl acetate.
CA   (2) Acetyl-CoA + cinnamyl alcohol = CoA + cinnamyl acetate.
CC   -!- The enzyme is found in flowers like Clarkia breweri, where it is
CC       important for floral scent production.
CC   -!- Unlike EC 2.3.1.84 this enzyme is active with alcohols that contain a
