IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: trans-zeatin O-β-D-glucosyltransferase

Reaction: UDP-glucose + trans-zeatin = UDP + O-β-D-glucosyl-trans-zeatin


Other name(s): zeatin O-β-D-glucosyltransferase; uridine diphosphoglucose-zeatin O-glucosyltransferase; zeatin O-glucosyltransferase

Systematic name: UDP-glucose:trans-zeatin O-β-D-glucosyltransferase

Comments: Unlike EC, cis-zeatin O-β-D-glucosyltransferase, UDP-D-xylose can also act as donor (cf. EC zeatin O-β-D-xylosyltransferase).
