Enzyme Commission Primary Name: tropine acyltransferase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: tropine:acyl-CoA transferase, acetyl-CoA:tropan-3-ol acyltransferase, tropine acetyltransferase, tropine tigloyltransferase, TAT
Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG'° in kcal/mol): 178.27905 [Latendresse13]
Enzyme Commission Summary:
This enzyme exhibits absolute specificity for the endo/3α configuration found in tropine as pseudotropine (tropan-3β-ol; see EC 188.8.131.52, pseudotropine acyltransferase) is not a substrate [Boswell99]. Acts on a wide range of aliphatic acyl-CoA derivatives, with tigloyl-CoA and acetyl-CoA being the best substrates. It is probably involved in the formation of the tropane alkaloid littorine, which is a precursor of hyoscyamine [Li06i].
