IUBMB Comments
The enzyme, found only in plants that belong to the Capsicum genus, catalyses the last step in the biosynthesis of capsaicinoids. The enzyme catalyses the acylation of vanillylamine by a branched-chain fatty acid. The exact structure of the fatty acid determines the type of capsaicinoid formed.
