Reaction(IUBMB)
UDP-glucose + gallate = UDP + 1-galloyl-beta-D-glucose [RN:R03297]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
UDP-glucose [CPD:C00029];
gallate [CPD:C01424]

Comment
A number of substituted benzoic acids and, more slowly, cinnamic acids, can act as acceptors. Vanillin is the best acceptor investigated.
