IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: phosphatidylglycerol—membrane-oligosaccharide glycerophosphotransferase

Reaction: phosphatidylglycerol + membrane-derived-oligosaccharide D-glucose = 1,2-diacyl-sn-glycerol + membrane-derived-oligosaccharide 6-(glycerophospho)-D-glucose

Other name(s): phosphoglycerol transferase; oligosaccharide glycerophosphotransferase; phosphoglycerol transferase I

Systematic name: phosphatidylglycerol:membrane-derived-oligosaccharide-D-glucose glycerophosphotransferase

Comments: 1,2-β- and 1,6-β-linked glucose residues in membrane polysaccharides and in synthetic glucosides can act as acceptors.
