IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: pyridoxine 5'-O-β-D-glucosyltransferase

Reaction: UDP-glucose + pyridoxine = UDP + 5'-O-β-D-glucosylpyridoxine

Other name(s): UDP-glucose:pyridoxine 5'-O-β-glucosyltransferase; uridine diphosphoglucose-pyridoxine 5'-β-glucosyltransferase; UDP-glucose-pyridoxine glucosyltransferase

Systematic name: UDP-glucose:pyridoxine 5'-O-β-D-glucosyltransferase

Comments: 4'-Deoxypyridoxine and pyridoxamine can also act as acceptors, but more slowly.
