Reaction: ADP-glucose + protein = ADP + α-D-glucosyl-protein
Other name(s): ADP-glucose:protein glucosyltransferase; adenosine diphosphoglucose-protein glucosyltransferase
Systematic name: ADP-glucose:protein 4-α-D-glucosyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme builds up α-1,4-glucan chains covalently bound to protein, thus acting as an initiator of glycogen synthesis.
