IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
β-glucogallin O-galloyltransferase
Systematic name:
1-O-galloyl-β-D-glucose:1-O-galloyl-β-D-glucose O-galloyltransferase



β-Glucogallin can act as donor and as acceptor. Digalloylglucose can also act as acceptor, with the formation of 1-O,2-O,6-O-trigalloylglucose.
