IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 2.4.2.39

Names

Accepted name:
xyloglucan 6-xylosyltransferase
Other names:
uridine diphosphoxylose-xyloglucan 6α-xylosyltransferase
xyloglucan 6-α-D-xylosyltransferase
UDP-D-xylose:xyloglucan 1,6-α-D-xylosyltransferase
Systematic name:
UDP-D-xylose:xyloglucan 6-α-D-xylosyltransferase

Reaction

Comments:

In association with EC 2.4.1.168 (xyloglucan 4-glucosyltransferase), this enzyme brings about the synthesis of xyloglucan; concurrent transfers of glucose and xylose are necessary for this synthesis.
