IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: flavone 7-O-β-glucosyltransferase

Reaction: UDP-glucose + 5,7,3',4'-tetrahydroxyflavone = UDP + 7-O-β-D-glucosyl-5,7,3',4'-tetrahydroxyflavone

See diagram for reaction on apigenin or luteolin.

Other name(s): UDP-glucose—apigenin β-glucosyltransferase; UDPglucose-luteolin β-D-glucosyltransferase; uridine diphosphoglucose-luteolin glucosyltransferase; uridine diphosphoglucose-apigenin 7-O-glucosyltransferase; UDP-glucosyltransferase (ambiguous)

Systematic name: UDP-glucose:5,7,3',4'-tetrahydroxyflavone 7-O-β-D-glucosyltransferase

Comments: A number of flavones, flavanones and flavonols can function as acceptors. Different from EC (flavonol 3-O-glucosyltransferase).
