EC 1.1.1.318     
Accepted name: eugenol synthase
Reaction: eugenol + a carboxylate + NADP+ = a coniferyl ester + NADPH + H+
Other name(s): LtCES1; EGS1; EGS2
Systematic name: eugenol:NADP+ oxidoreductase (coniferyl ester reducing)
Comments: The enzyme acts in the opposite direction. The enzymes from the plants Ocimum basilicum (sweet basil) [1,3], Clarkia breweri and Petunia hybrida [4] 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 [5]. The enzyme from Larrea tridentata (creosote bush) also forms chavicol from a coumaryl ester and can use NADH [2].
