The enzyme is involved in the biosynthesis of the protective and allelophatic benzoxazinoid DIMBOA [(2R)-4-hydroxy-7-methoxy-3-oxo-3,4-dihydro-2H-1,4-benzoxazin] in some plants, most commonly from the family of Poaceae (grasses).
the only substance that serves as a substrate for the recombinant Bx7 is TRIBOA-Glc, neither the aglucone TRIBOA nor well-known substrates of plant O-methyltransferases are efficiently converted by the enzyme. In case of quercetin, a minor activity is detected. BX7 has no catalytic activity toward phenylpropanoids and flavonoids, e.g. apigenin is no substrate
