Accepted name: flavonol-3-O-triglucoside O-coumaroyltransferase

Reaction: 4-coumaroyl-CoA + a flavonol 3-O-[β-D-glucosyl-(1→2)-β-D-glucosyl-(1→2)-β-D-glucoside] = CoA + a flavonol 3-O-[6-(4-coumaroyl)-β-D-glucosyl-(1→2)-β-D-glucosyl-(1→2)-β-D-glucoside]

Other name(s): 4-coumaroyl-CoA:flavonol-3-O-[β-D-glucosyl-(1→2)-β-D-glucoside] 6′′′-O-4-coumaroyltransferase (incorrect); 4-coumaroyl-CoA:flavonol 3-O-[β-D-glucosyl-(1→2)-β-D-glucosyl-(1→2)-β-D-glucoside] 6′′′-O-4-coumaroyltransferase

Systematic name: 4-coumaroyl-CoA:flavonol 3-O-(β-D-glucosyl-1,2-β-D-glucosyl-1,2-β-D-glucoside) 6'''-O-4-coumaroyltransferase

Comments: Acylates kaempferol 3-O-triglucoside on the terminal glucosyl unit, almost certainly at C-6.
