EC 2.3.1.229     
Accepted name: 4-coumaroyl-homoserine lactone synthase
Reaction: 4-coumaroyl-CoA + S-adenosyl-L-methionine = CoA + S-methyl-5′-thioadenosine + N-(4-coumaroyl)-L-homoserine lactone
Other name(s): p-coumaryl-homoserine lactone synthase; RpaI
Systematic name: 4-coumaroyl-CoA:S-adenosyl-L-methionine trans-4-coumaroyltranserase (lactone-forming, methylthioadenosine-releasing)
Comments: The enzyme is found in the bacterium Rhodopseudomonas palustris, which produces N-(4-coumaroyl)-L-homoserine lactone as a quorum-sensing signal.
