This BioBrick contains the coding sequence for BSMT1 (SAM benzoic acid/salicylic acid carboxyl methyltransferase I), it was derived from a Petunia x hybrida gene and it catalyzes the reaction neeeded to product Methyl Salicylate from Salicylic Acid. This part was cloned by the iGEM UniTN Trento 2013 team for the creation of Wintergreen Devices BBa_K1065106 and BBa_K1065106.
This part was submitted in pSB1C3 to the registry by the UniTN-Trento 2013, using an original part of iGEM MIT 2006 BBa_J45119 in pSB1AT3.
Usage and Biology
BSMT1 catalyzes the conversion of salicylic acid to methyl salicylate, which has a wintergreen smell.
