ENZYME entry: EC 2.1.1.273

Accepted Name
Benzoate O-methyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
S-adenosyl-L-methionine + benzoate <=> S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + methyl benzoate
Comment(s)
  • While the enzyme from the plant Zea mays is specific for benzoate, the enzymes from Arabidopsis species and Clarkia breweri also catalyze the reaction of EC 2.1.1.274.
  • In snapdragon (Antirrhinum majus) two isoforms are found, one specific for benzoate and one that is also active toward salicylate.
  • The volatile product is an important scent compound in some flowering species.
