EC 2.4.1.193

Names

Accepted name:
sarsapogenin 3β-glucosyltransferase
Other names:
UDPglucose:(25S)-5β-spirostan-3β-ol 3-O-β-D-glucosyltransferase
uridine diphosphoglucose-sarsapogenin glucosyltransferase
Systematic name:
UDP-glucose:(25S)-5β-spirostan-3β-ol 3-O-β-D-glucosyltransferase

Reaction

Comments:

Specific to 5β-spirostanols. Involved in the biosynthesis of plant saponins. Not identical with EC 2.4.1.173 (sterol 3β-glucosyltransferase) or EC 2.4.1.192 (nuatigenin 3β-glucosyltransferase).
