Domain

Starch synthase, catalytic domain (IPR013534)

Short name: Starch_synth_cat_dom

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This region represents the catalytic domain of glycogen (or starch) synthases that use ADP-glucose (EC:2.4.1.21), rather than UDP-glucose (EC:2.4.1.11) as in animals, as the glucose donor. This enzyme is found in bacteria and plants. Whether the name given is glycogen synthase or starch synthase depends on context, and therefore on substrate.
