KEGG   ENZYME: 2.4.1.220Help
Entry
EC 2.4.1.220                Enzyme                                 

Name
indoxyl-UDPG glucosyltransferase;
indoxyl-UDPG-glucosyltransferase
Class
Transferases;
Glycosyltransferases;
Hexosyltransferases
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
UDP-glucose:indoxyl 3-O-beta-D-glucosyltransferase
Reaction(IUBMB)
UDP-glucose + indoxyl = UDP + indican [RN:R06048]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
UDP-glucose [CPD:C00029];
indoxyl [CPD:C05658]
Product
UDP [CPD:C00015];
indican [CPD:C08481]
Comment
Also acts to a limited extent on 4-, 5-, 6- and 7-hydroxyindole. After enzymic or chemical hydrolysis, indican forms indoxyl, which, in turn, is converted in the presence of oxygen to the dye indigo.
