IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


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



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