Accepted name: tyramine N-feruloyltransferase
Reaction: feruloyl-CoA + tyramine = CoA + N-feruloyltyramine
Other name(s): tyramine N-feruloyl-CoA transferase; feruloyltyramine synthase; feruloyl-CoA tyramine N-feruloyl-CoA transferase; tyramine feruloyltransferase
Systematic name: feruloyl-CoA:tyramine N-(hydroxycinnamoyl)transferase
Comments: Cinnamoyl-CoA, 4-coumaroyl-CoA and sinapoyl-CoA can also act as donors, and some aromatic amines can act as acceptors.
