IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: aliphatic desulfoglucosinolate sulfotransferase

Reaction: 3'-phosphoadenylyl sulfate + an aliphatic desulfoglucosinolate = adenosine 3',5'-bisphosphate + an aliphatic glucosinolate

Other name(s): SOT17 (gene name); SOT18 (gene name); 3'-phosphoadenylyl-sulfate:aliphatic desulfoglucosinolate sulfotransferase

Systematic name: 3'-phosphoadenylyl-sulfate:aliphatic desulfoglucosinolate sulfonotransferase

Comments: The enzyme catalyses the last step in the biosynthesis of aliphatic glucosinolate core structures. cf. EC, aromatic desulfoglucosinolate sulfotransferase.
