DE   Alcohol O-cinnamoyltransferase.
CA   1-O-trans-cinnamoyl-beta-D-glucopyranose + ROH = alkyl cinnamate +
CA   glucose.
CC   -!- Acceptor alcohols (ROH) include methanol, ethanol and propanol.
CC   -!- No cofactors are required as 1-O-trans-cinnamoyl-beta-D-glucopyranose
CC       itself is an 'energy-rich' (activated) acyl-donor, comparable to CoA-
CC       thioesters.
CC   -!- 1-O-trans-cinnamoyl-beta-D-gentobiose can also act as the acyl donor,
CC       but with much less affinity.
