ENZYME entry: EC 2.3.1.268

Accepted Name
ethanol O-acetyltransferase
Alternative Name(s)
ethanol acetyltransferase
Reaction catalysed
acetyl-CoA + ethanol <=> CoA + ethyl acetate
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, characterized from the yeast Wickerhamomyces anomalus, is responsible for most ethyl acetate synthesis in known ethyl acetate-producing yeasts.
  • It is only distantly related to enzymes classified as EC 2.3.1.84.
  • The enzyme also possesses thioesterase and esterase activities, which are inhibited by high ethanol concentrations.
