Entry
EC 2.4.1.168                Enzyme                                 

Name
xyloglucan 4-glucosyltransferase;
uridine diphosphoglucose-xyloglucan 4beta-glucosyltransferase;
xyloglucan 4beta-D-glucosyltransferase;
xyloglucan glucosyltransferase;
UDP-glucose:xyloglucan 1,4-beta-D-glucosyltransferase
Class
Transferases;
Glycosyltransferases;
Hexosyltransferases
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
UDP-glucose:xyloglucan 4-beta-D-glucosyltransferase
Reaction(IUBMB)
Transfers a beta-D-glucosyl residue from UDP-glucose on to a glucose residue in xyloglucan, forming a beta-(1->4)-D-glucosyl-D-glucose linkage
Comment
In association with EC 2.4.2.39 (xyloglucan 6-xylosyltransferase), this enzyme brings about the synthesis of xyloglucan; concurrent transfers of glucose and xylose are essential for this synthesis. Not identical with EC 2.4.1.12 cellulose synthase (UDP-forming).
History
