Accepted name: tricin synthase
Reaction: 2 S-adenosyl-L-methionine + tricetin = 2 S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + 3′,5′-O-dimethyltricetin (overall reaction)
(1a) S-adenosyl-L-methionine + tricetin = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + 3′-O-methyltricetin
(1b) S-adenosyl-L-methionine + 3′-O-methyltricetin = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + 3′,5′-O-dimethyltricetin
Glossary: tricin = 3′,5′-O-dimethyltricetin
Other name(s): ROMT-17; ROMT-15; HvOMT1; ZmOMT1
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:tricetin 3′,5′-O-dimethyltransferase
Comments: The enzymes from Oryza sativa (ROMT-15 and ROMT-17) catalyses the stepwise methylation of tricetin to its 3′-mono- and 3′,5′-dimethyl ethers. In contrast with the wheat enzyme (EC, tricetin 3′,4′,5′-O-trimethyltransferase), tricetin dimethyl ether is not converted to its 3′,4′,5′-trimethylated ether derivative [1]. The enzymes from Hordeum vulgare (HvOMT1) and from Zea mays (ZmOMT1) form the 3′,5′-dimethyl derivative as the major product [2].
