Reaction: 2 4-coumaroyl-CoA + spermidine = 2 CoA + N1,N8-bis(4-coumaroyl)-spermidine
Other name(s): SCT
Systematic name: 4-coumaroyl-CoA:spermidine N-(hydroxycinnamoyl)transferase
Comments: The enzyme from the plant Arabidopsis thaliana has no activity with sinapoyl-CoA (cf. EC 188.8.131.52, spermidine disinapoyl transferase).
