Accepted name: diglucosyl diacylglycerol synthase (1,2-linking)

Reaction: UDP-α-D-glucose + 1,2-diacyl-3-O-(α-D-glucopyranosyl)-sn-glycerol = 1,2-diacyl-3-O-[α-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→2)-O-α-D-glucopyranosyl]-sn-glycerol + UDP

Other name(s): monoglucosyl diacylglycerol (1→2) glucosyltransferase; MGlcDAG (1→2) glucosyltransferase; DGlcDAG synthase (ambiguous); UDP-glucose:1,2-diacyl-3-O-(α-D-glucopyranosyl)-sn-glycerol (1→2) glucosyltransferase; diglucosyl diacylglycerol synthase

Systematic name: UDP-α-D-glucose:1,2-diacyl-3-O-(α-D-glucopyranosyl)-sn-glycerol 2-glucosyltransferase

Comments: The enzyme from Acholeplasma laidlawii requires Mg2+.
