ENZYME entry: EC 1.1.1.318

Accepted Name
Eugenol synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
EGS2.
Reaction catalysed
Eugenol + a carboxylate + NADP(+) <=> a coniferyl ester + NADPH
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme acts in the opposite direction.
  • The enzymes from the plants Ocimum basilicum (sweet basil), 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.
