EC 188.8.131.52 - Xyloglucan 6-xylosyltransferase
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
- Transfers an α-D-xylosyl residue from UDP-D-xylose to a glucose residue in xyloglucan, forming an α-(1→6)-D-xylosyl-D-glucose linkage
In association with EC 184.108.40.206 (xyloglucan 4-glucosyltransferase), this enzyme brings about the synthesis of xyloglucan; concurrent transfers of glucose and xylose are necessary for this synthesis.
