ENZYME entry: EC 2.3.2.35

Accepted Name
Capsaicin synthase.
Reaction catalysed
(6E)-8-methylnon-6-enoyl-CoA + vanillylamine <=> CoA + capsaicin
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, found only in plants that belong to the Capsicum genus, catalyzes the last step in the biosynthesis of capsaicinoids.
  • The enzyme catalyzes the acylation of vanillylamine by a branched- chain fatty acid.
  • The exact structure of the fatty acid determines the type of capsaicinoid formed.
