IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: cis-zeatin O-β-D-glucosyltransferase

Reaction: UDP-glucose + cis-zeatin = UDP + O-β-D-glucosyl-cis-zeatin


Systematic name: UDP-glucose:cis-zeatin O-β-D-glucosyltransferase

Comments: The enzyme from maize can use cis-zeatin and UDPglucose as substrates, but not cis-ribosylzeatin, trans-zeatin or trans-ribosylzeatin. Unlike EC, trans-zeatin O-β-D-glucosyltransferase, UDP-D-xylose cannot act as a donor.
