IUBMB Comments
While the enzyme from the plant Zea mays is specific for benzoate , the enzymes from Arabidopsis species and Clarkia breweri also catalyse the reaction of EC 2.1.1.274, salicylate 1-O-methyltransferase [1,5]. In snapdragon (Antirrhinum majus) two isoforms are found, one specific for benzoate [2,3] and one that is also active towards salicylate . The volatile product is an important scent compound in some flowering species .
