Entry
EC 2.7.8.21                 Enzyme                                 

Name
membrane-oligosaccharide glycerophosphotransferase;
periplasmic phosphoglycerotransferase;
phosphoglycerol cyclase
Class
Transferases;
Transferring phosphorus-containing groups;
Transferases for other substituted phosphate groups
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
membrane-derived-oligosaccharide-6-(glycerophospho)-D-glucose:membrane-derived-oligosaccharide-D-glucose glycerophosphotransferase
Reaction(IUBMB)
Transfer of a glycerophospho group from one membrane-derived oligosaccharide to another
Comment
beta-Linked glucose residues in simple glucosides, such as gentiobiose, can act as acceptors. In the presence of low concentrations of acceptor, free cyclic 1,2-phosphoglycerol is formed.
