IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: 13-hydroxydocosanoate 13-β-glucosyltransferase

Reaction: UDP-glucose + 13-hydroxydocosanoate = UDP + 13-β-D-glucosyloxydocosanoate

Other name(s): 13-glucosyloxydocosanoate 2'-β-glucosyltransferase; UDP-glucose:13-hydroxydocosanoic acid glucosyltransferase; uridine diphosphoglucose-hydroxydocosanoate glucosyltransferase; UDP-glucose-13-hydroxydocosanoate glucosyltransferase

Systematic name: UDP-glucose:13-hydroxydocosanoate 13-β-D-glucosyltransferase

Comments: 13-β-D-Glucosyloxydocosanoate can also act as acceptor, leading to the formation by Candida bogoriensis of the extracellular glycolipid, hydroxydocosanoate sophoroside diacetate.
