Accepted name: 10-deacetylbaccatin III 10-O-acetyltransferase
Reaction: acetyl-CoA + 10-deacetylbaccatin III = CoA + baccatin III
Systematic name: acetyl-CoA:taxan-10β-ol O-acetyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme will not acylate the hydroxy group at 1β, 7β or 13α of 10-deacetyl baccatin III, or at 5α of taxa-4(20),11-dien-5α-ol. May be identical to EC, 10-hydroxytaxane O-acetyltransferase.
