IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: flavonol-3-O-glycoside xylosyltransferase

Reaction: UDP-α-D-xylose + a flavonol 3-O-glycoside = UDP + a flavonol 3-[β-D-xylosyl-(1→2)-β-D-glycoside]

Other name(s): UDP-D-xylose:flavonol-3-O-glycoside 2''-O-β-D-xylosyltransferase

Systematic name: UDP-α-D-xylose:flavonol-3-O-glycoside 2''-O-β-D-xylosyltransferase

Comments: Flavonol 3-O-glucoside, flavonol 3-O-galactoside and, more slowly, rutin, can act as acceptors.
