Hexosyltransferases
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
UDP-glucose:phosphopolyprenol D-glucosyltransferase
Reaction(IUBMB)
UDP-glucose + polyprenyl phosphate = UDP + polyprenylphosphate-glucose [RN:R03190]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
UDP-glucose [CPD:C00029];
polyprenyl phosphate [CPD:C01048]
Product
UDP [CPD:C00015];
polyprenylphosphate-glucose [CPD:C03799]
Comment
Ficaprenyl phosphate is the best substrate; other polyprenols can also act as substrates, but more slowly.
