IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 2.4.1.168

Names

Accepted name:
xyloglucan 4-glucosyltransferase
Other names:
UDPglucose:xyloglucan 1,4-β-D-glucosyltransferase
uridine diphosphoglucose-xyloglucan 4β-glucosyltransferase
xyloglucan 4β-D-glucosyltransferase
xyloglucan glucosyltransferase
UDP-glucose:xyloglucan 1,4-β-D-glucosyltransferase
Systematic name:
UDP-glucose:xyloglucan 4-β-D-glucosyltransferase

Reaction

Comments:

In association with EC 2.4.2.39 (xyloglucan 6-xylosyltransferase), this enzyme brings about the synthesis of xyloglucan; concurrent transfers of glucose and xylose are essential for this synthesis. Not identical with EC 2.4.1.12 cellulose synthase (UDP-forming).
