Accepted name: long-chain-alcohol O-fatty-acyltransferase
Reaction: acyl-CoA + a long-chain alcohol = CoA + a long-chain ester
Other name(s): wax synthase; wax-ester synthase
Systematic name: acyl-CoA:long-chain-alcohol O-acyltransferase
Comments: Transfers saturated or unsaturated acyl residues of chain-length C18 to C20 to long-chain alcohols, forming waxes. The best acceptor is cis-icos-11-en-1-ol.
