Accepted name: zeatin 9-aminocarboxyethyltransferase
Reaction: O-acetyl-L-serine + zeatin = lupinate + acetate
For diagram of reaction, click here
Glossary: lupinate = (S)-2-amino-3-{[(E)-4-hydroxy-3-methylbut-2-enylamino]purin-9-yl}propanoate
zeatin = (E)-2-methyl-4-(9H-purin-6-ylamino)but-2-en-1-ol = (E)-N6-(4-hydroxy-3-methylbut-2-enyl)adenine
O-acetyl-L-serine = O3-acetyl-L-serine = (2S)-3-acetyloxy-2-aminopropanoic acid
Other name(s): β-(9-cytokinin)-alanine synthase; β-(9-cytokinin)alanine synthase; O-acetyl-L-serine acetate-lyase (adding N6-substituted adenine); lupinate synthetase; lupinic acid synthase; lupinic acid synthetase; 3-O-acetyl-L-serine:zeatin 2-amino-2-carboxyethyltransferase
Systematic name: O-acetyl-L-serine:zeatin 2-amino-2-carboxyethyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme acts not only on zeatin but also on other N6-substituted adenines. The reaction destroys their cytokinin activity and forms the corresponding 3-(adenin-9-yl)-L-alanine.
