IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 2.4.1.183

Names

Accepted name:
α-1,3-glucan synthase
Other names:
1,3-α-D-glucan synthase
UDPglucose:α-D-(1-3)-glucan 3-α-D-glucosyltransferase
uridine diphosphoglucose-1,3-α-glucan glucosyltransferase
UDP-glucose:α-D-(1-3)-glucan 3-α-D-glucosyltransferase
Systematic name:
UDP-glucose:α-D-(1→3)-glucan 3-α-D-glucosyltransferase

Reaction

Comments:

A glucan primer is needed to begin the reaction, which brings about elongation of the glucan chains.
