IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: cis-p-coumarate glucosyltransferase

Reaction: UDP-glucose + cis-p-coumarate = 4'-O-β-D-glucosyl-cis-p-coumarate + UDP

Systematic name: UDP-glucose:cis-p-coumarate β-D-glucosyltransferase

Comments: cis-Caffeic acid also serves as a glucosyl acceptor with the enzyme from Sphagnum fallax kinggr. The corresponding trans-isomers are not substrates.
