EC 2.8.2.2     
Accepted name: alcohol sulfotransferase
Reaction: 3′-phosphoadenylyl sulfate + an alcohol = adenosine 3′,5′-bisphosphate + an alkyl sulfate
Glossary: 3′-phosphoadenylyl sulfate = PAPS
Other name(s): hydroxysteroid sulfotransferase; 3β-hydroxy steroid sulfotransferase; Δ5-3β-hydroxysteroid sulfokinase; 3-hydroxysteroid sulfotransferase; HST; 5α-androstenol sulfotransferase; cholesterol sulfotransferase; dehydroepiandrosterone sulfotransferase; estrogen sulfokinase; estrogen sulfotransferase; steroid alcohol sulfotransferase; steroid sulfokinase; steroid sulfotransferase; sterol sulfokinase; sterol sulfotransferase; alcohol/hydroxysteroid sulfotransferase; 3β-hydroxysteroid sulfotransferase
Systematic name: 3′-phosphoadenylyl-sulfate:alcohol sulfotransferase
Comments: Primary and secondary alcohols, including aliphatic alcohols, ascorbic acid, chloramphenicol, ephedrine and hydroxysteroids, but not phenolic steroids, can act as acceptors (cf. EC 2.8.2.15 steroid sulfotransferase).
