The enzyme, characterized from the yeast Wickerhamomyces anomalus, is responsible for most ethyl acetate synthesis in known ethyl acetate-producing yeasts. It is only distantly related to enzymes classified as EC 2.3.1.84, alcohol O-acetyltransferase. The enzyme also possesses thioesterase and esterase activities, which are inhibited by high ethanol concentrations.
