IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: lipopolysaccharide glucosyltransferase I

Reaction: UDP-glucose + lipopolysaccharide = UDP + D-glucosyl-lipopolysaccharide

Other name(s): UDP-glucose:lipopolysaccharide glucosyltransferase I; lipopolysaccharide glucosyltransferase; uridine diphosphate glucose:lipopolysaccharide glucosyltransferase I; uridine diphosphoglucose-lipopolysaccharide glucosyltransferase

Systematic name: UDP-glucose:lipopolysaccharide glucosyltransferase

Comments: Transfers glucosyl residues to the backbone portion of lipopolysaccharide [cf. EC (lipopolysaccharide 3-α-galactosyltransferase, EC (lipopolysaccharide N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase) and EC (lipopolysaccharide glucosyltransferase II)].
