Reaction: UDP-glucose + 5,7,3',4'-tetrahydroxyflavone = UDP + 7-O-β-D-glucosyl-5,7,3',4'-tetrahydroxyflavone
See diagram for reaction on apigenin or luteolin.
Other name(s): UDP-glucoseapigenin β-glucosyltransferase; UDPglucose-luteolin β-D-glucosyltransferase; uridine diphosphoglucose-luteolin glucosyltransferase; uridine diphosphoglucose-apigenin 7-O-glucosyltransferase; UDP-glucosyltransferase (ambiguous)
Systematic name: UDP-glucose:5,7,3',4'-tetrahydroxyflavone 7-O-β-D-glucosyltransferase
Comments: A number of flavones, flavanones and flavonols can function as acceptors. Different from EC 188.8.131.52 (flavonol 3-O-glucosyltransferase).
