Accepted name:
aromatic desulfoglucosinolate sulfotransferase
Other names:
3'-phosphoadenosine-5'-phosphosulfate:desulfoglucosinolate sulfotransferase [ambiguous]
PAPS-desulfoglucosinolate sulfotransferase [ambiguous]
desulfoglucosinolate sulfotransferase [ambiguous]
Systematic name:
3'-phosphoadenylyl-sulfate:aromatic desulfoglucosinolate sulfotransferase



This enzyme, characterized from cruciferous plants, catalyses the last step in the biosynthesis of tryptophan- and phenylalanine-derived glucosinolates. cf. EC, aliphatic desulfoglucosinolate sulfotransferase.
