IUBMB Comments

The enzyme acts in the opposite direction. The enzymes from the plants Ocimum basilicum (sweet basil) [1,3], Clarkia breweri and Petunia hybrida only accept coniferyl acetate and form eugenol. The enzyme from Pimpinella anisum (anise) forms anol (from 4-coumaryl acetate) in vivo, although the recombinant enzyme can form eugenol from coniferyl acetate . The enzyme from Larrea tridentata (creosote bush) also forms chavicol from a coumaryl ester and can use NADH .

The expected taxonomic range for this enzyme is: Eukaryota, Bacteria

Synonyms
eugenol synthase, rcegs1, obegs1, obegs4, eugenol synthase 1, cbegs1, cbegs2, dce(i)gs1, eugenol/isoeugenol synthase, phegs1, more
