IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: β-glucoside kinase

Reaction: ATP + cellobiose = ADP + 6-phospho-β-D-glucosyl-(1→4)-D-glucose

Other name(s): β-D-glucoside kinase (phosphorylating)

Systematic name: ATP:cellobiose 6-phosphotransferase

Comments: Phosphorylates a number of β-D-glucosides; GTP, CTP, ITP and UTP can also act as donors.
