IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: 1,2-diacylglycerol 3-glucosyltransferase

Reaction: UDP-glucose + 1,2-diacyl-sn-glycerol = UDP + 3-D-glucosyl-1,2-diacyl-sn-glycerol

Other name(s): UDP-glucose:diacylglycerol glucosyltransferase; UDP-glucose:1,2-diacylglycerol glucosyltransferase; uridine diphosphoglucose-diacylglycerol glucosyltransferase; UDP-glucose-diacylglycerol glucosyltransferase; UDP-glucose:1,2-diacylglycerol 3-D-glucosyltransferase

Systematic name: UDP-glucose:1,2-diacyl-sn-glycerol 3-D-glucosyltransferase

Comments: Many diacylglycerols with long-chain acyl groups can act as acceptors.
