Accepted name: anthranilate N-benzoyltransferase

Reaction: benzoyl-CoA + anthranilate = CoA + N-benzoylanthranilate

Systematic name: benzoyl-CoA:anthranilate N-benzoyltransferase

Comments: Cinnamoyl-CoA, 4-coumaroyl-CoA and salicyloyl-CoA can act as donors, but more slowly. Involved in the biosynthesis of phytoalexins.
