Accepted name: isoeugenol synthase
Reaction: isoeugenol + acetate + NADP+ = coniferyl acetate + NADPH + H+
Other name(s): IGS1; t-anol/isoeugenol synthase 1
Systematic name: eugenol:NADP+ oxidoreductase (coniferyl acetate reducing)
Comments: The enzyme acts in the opposite direction. In Ocimum basilicum (sweet basil), Clarkia breweri and Petunia hybrida only isoeugenol is formed [1,2]. However in Pimpinella anisum (anise) only anol is formed in vivo, although the cloned enzyme does produce isoeugenol [3].
