EC 2.3.1.171     
Accepted name: anthocyanin 6′′-O-malonyltransferase
Reaction: malonyl-CoA + an anthocyanidin 3-O-β-D-glucoside = CoA + an anthocyanidin 3-O-(6-O-malonyl-β-D-glucoside)
Systematic name: malonyl-CoA:anthocyanidin-3-O-β-D-glucoside 6′′-O-malonyltransferase
Comments: Acts on pelargonidin 3-O-glucoside in dahlia (Dahlia variabilis), delphinidin 3-O-glucoside, and on cyanidin 3-O-glucoside in transgenic petunia (Petunia hybrida).
