IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: chlorophenol O-methyltransferase

Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + trichlorophenol = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + trichloroanisole

Other name(s): halogenated phenol O-methyltransferase; trichlorophenol O-methyltransferase

Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:trichlorophenol O-methyltransferase
