EC 2.5.1.138     
Accepted name: coumarin 8-geranyltransferase
Reaction: (1) geranyl diphosphate + umbelliferone = diphosphate + 8-geranylumbelliferone
(2) geranyl diphosphate + esculetin = diphosphate + 8-geranylesculetin
Glossary: geranyl diphosphate = (2E)-3,7-dimethylocta-2,6-dien-1-yl diphosphate
esculetin = 6,7-dihydroxy-1-benzopyran-2-one = 6,7-dihydroxycoumarin
umbelliferone = 7-hydroxy-1-benzopyran-2-one = 7-hydroxycoumarin
Other name(s): ClPT1
Systematic name: geranyl diphosphate:umbelliferone 8-geranyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the plant Citrus limon, is specific for geranyl diphosphate as a prenyl donor. It also has low activity with the coumarins 5,7-dihydroxycoumarin and 5-methoxy-7-hydroxycoumarin.
