(1b) S-octanoyl-L-cysteinyl-[PqsC protein] + (2-aminobenzoyl)acetate = 1-(2-aminophenyl)decane-1,3-dione + CO2 + L-cysteinyl-[PqsC protein]
(1c) 1-(2-aminophenyl)decane-1,3-dione = 2-heptyl-4-quinolone + H2O
Glossary: 2-heptyl-4-quinolone = 2-heptylquinolin-4(1H)-one
Other name(s): pqsBC (gene names); malonyl-CoA:anthraniloyl-CoA C-acetyltransferase (decarboxylating)
Systematic name: octanoyl-CoA:(2-aminobenzoyl)acetate octanoyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa, is a heterodimeric complex. The PqsC subunit acquires an octanoyl group from octanoyl-CoA and attaches it to an internal cysteine residue. Together with the PqsB subunit, the proteins catalyse the coupling of the octanoyl group with (2-aminobenzoyl)acetate, leading to decarboxylation and dehydration events that result in closure of the quinoline ring.

Accepted name: tRNAPhe {7-[3-amino-3-(methoxycarbonyl)propyl]wyosine37-N}-methoxycarbonyltransferase
Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + 7-[(3S)-3-amino-3-(methoxycarbonyl)propyl]wyosine37 in tRNAPhe + CO2 = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + wybutosine37 in tRNAPhe

Glossary: wyosine = 4,6-dimethyl-3-(β-D-ribofuranosyl)-3,4-dihydro-9H-imidazo[1,2-a]purin-9-one
wybutosine = yW = 7-{(3S)-3-(methoxycarbonyl)-3-(methoxycarbonylamino)propyl}-4,5-dimethyl-3-(β-D-ribofuranosyl)-3,4-dihydro-9H-imidazo[1,2-a]purin-9-one
Other name(s): TYW4 (ambiguous); tRNA-yW synthesizing enzyme-4 (ambiguous)
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:tRNAPhe {7-[(3S)-3-amino-3-(methoxycarbonyl)propyl]wyosine37-N}-methyltransferase (carbon dioxide-adding)
Comments: The enzyme is found only in eukaryotes, where it is involved in the biosynthesis of wybutosine, a hypermodified tricyclic base found at position 37 of certain tRNAs. The modification is important for translational reading-frame maintenance. In some species that produce hydroxywybutosine the enzyme uses 7-[2-hydroxy-3-amino-3-(methoxycarbonyl)propyl]wyosine37 in tRNAPhe as substrate. The enzyme also has the activity of EC, tRNAPhe [7-(3-amino-3-carboxypropyl)wyosine37-O]-methyltransferase [2].

Accepted name: methanol O-anthraniloyltransferase
Reaction: anthraniloyl-CoA + methanol = CoA + O-methyl anthranilate
Glossary: anthraniloyl-CoA = 2-aminobenzoyl-CoA
Other name(s): AMAT; anthraniloyl-coenzyme A (CoA):methanol acyltransferase
Systematic name: anthraniloyl-CoA:methanol O-anthraniloyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme from Concord grape (Vitis labrusca) is solely responsible for the production of O-methyl anthranilate, an important aroma and flavor compound in the grape. The enzyme has a broad substrate specificity, and can use a range of alcohols with substantial activity, the best being butanol, benzyl alcohol, iso-pentanol, octanol and 2-propanol. It can use benzoyl-CoA and acetyl-CoA as acyl donors with lower efficiency. In addition to O-methyl anthranilate, the enzyme might be responsible for the production of ethyl butanoate, methyl-3-hydroxy butanoate and ethyl-3-hydroxy butanoate, which are present in large quantities in the grapes. Also catalyses EC, benzyl alcohol O-benzoyltransferase.
