EC 220.127.116.11 - α-1,4-glucan-protein synthase (ADP-forming)
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
adenosine diphosphoglucose-protein glucosyltransferase
- ADP-glucose + protein = ADP + α-D-glucosyl-protein
The enzyme builds up α-1,4-glucan chains covalently bound to protein, thus acting as an initiator of glycogen synthesis.
