Accepted name: fumigaclavine B O-acetyltransferase
Reaction: acetyl-CoA + fumigaclavine B = CoA + fumigaclavine A
Glossary: fumigaclavine B = 6,8β-dimethylergolin-9-ol;
fumigaclavine A = 6,8β-dimethylergolin-9β-yl acetate
Other name(s): FgaAT
Systematic name: acetyl-CoA:fumigaclavine B O-acetyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme participates in the biosynthesis of fumigaclavine C, an ergot alkaloid produced by some fungi of the Trichocomaceae family.
