Accepted name: acetyl-CoA-benzylalcohol acetyltransferase
Reaction: (1) acetyl-CoA + benzyl alcohol = CoA + benzyl acetate
(2) acetyl-CoA + cinnamyl alcohol = CoA + cinnamyl acetate
Other name(s): BEAT
Systematic name: acetyl-CoA:benzylalcohol O-acetyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme is found in flowers like Clarkia breweri, where it is important for floral scent production. Unlike EC, alcohol O-acetyltransferase, this enzyme is active with alcohols that contain a benzyl ring.
