IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: hydroxyjasmonate sulfotransferase

Reaction: 3'-phosphoadenylyl-sulfate + 12-hydroxyjasmonate = adenosine 3',5'-bisphosphate + 12-sulfooxyjasmonate

Glossary: 12-hydroxyjasmonate = {(1R,2R)-2-[(2E)-5-hydroxypent-2-enyl]-3-oxocyclopentyl}acetate

Other name(s): ST2A (gene name); 3'-phosphoadenylyl-sulfate:12-hydroxyjasmonate sulfotransferase

Systematic name: 3'-phosphoadenylyl-sulfate:12-hydroxyjasmonate sulfonotransferase

Comments: The enzyme, charaterized from the plant Arabidopsis thaliana, also acts on 11-hydroxyjasmonate.
