EC 2.4.1.192

Names

Accepted name:
nuatigenin 3β-glucosyltransferase
Other names:
UDPglucose:(20S,22S,25S)-22,25-epoxyfurost-5-ene-3β,26-diol 3-O-β-D-glucosyltransferase
uridine diphosphoglucose-nuatigenin glucosyltransferase
Systematic name:
UDP-glucose:(20S,22S,25S)-22,25-epoxyfurost-5-ene-3β,26-diol 3-O-β-D-glucosyltransferase

Reaction

Comments:

Some other sapogenins can act as glucosyl acceptors. Involved in the biosynthesis of plant saponins. Not identical with EC 2.4.1.173 (sterol 3β-glucosyltransferase) or EC 2.4.1.193 (sarsapogenin 3β-glucosyltransferase).
