Accepted name: tartronate O-hydroxycinnamoyltransferase
Reaction: sinapoyl-CoA + 2-hydroxymalonate = CoA + sinapoyltartronate
Glossary: sinapate = 4-hydroxy-3,5-dimethoxycinnamate
tartronate = 2-hydroxymalonate
Other name(s): tartronate sinapoyltransferase; hydroxycinnamoyl-coenzyme-A:tartronate hydroxycinnamoyltransferase
Systematic name: sinapoyl-CoA:2-hydroxymalonate O-(hydroxycinnamoyl)transferase
Comments: 4-Coumaroyl-CoA (4-hydroxycinnamoyl-CoA), caffeoyl-CoA (3,4-dihydroxycinnamoyl-CoA) and feruloyl-CoA (4-hydroxy-3-methoxycinnamoyl-CoA) can also act as donors for the enzyme from the mung bean (Vigna radiata).
