IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
gallate 1-β-glucosyltransferase
Other names:
UDP-glucose—vanillate 1-glucosyltransferase
UDPglucose:gallate glucosyltransferase
UDPglucose:vanillate 1-O-glucosyltransferase
UDP-glucose:gallate β-D-glucosyltransferase
Systematic name:
UDP-α-D-glucose:gallate β-D-glucosyltransferase



A number of substituted benzoic acids and, more slowly, cinnamic acids, can act as acceptors. Vanillin is the best acceptor investigated.
