BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
UDP-glucose:(25S)-5beta-spirostan-3beta-ol 3-O-beta-D-glucosyltransferase
Reaction(IUBMB)
UDP-glucose + (25S)-5beta-spirostan-3beta-ol = UDP + (25S)-5beta-spirostan-3beta-ol 3-O-beta-D-glucoside [RN:R04359]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
UDP-glucose [CPD:C00029];
(25S)-5beta-spirostan-3beta-ol [CPD:C03963]
Product
UDP [CPD:C00015];
(25S)-5beta-spirostan-3beta-ol 3-O-beta-D-glucoside [CPD:C08886]
Comment
Specific to 5beta-spirostanols. Involved in the biosynthesis of plant saponins. Not identical with EC 2.4.1.173 (sterol 3beta-glucosyltransferase) or EC 2.4.1.192 (nuatigenin 3beta-glucosyltransferase).
History
