ENZYME entry: EC 2.4.1.11

Accepted Name
Glycogen(starch) synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
UDP-glucose--glycogen glucosyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
UDP-glucose ((1->4)-alpha-D-glucosyl)(n) <=> UDP + ((1->4)-alpha-D-glucosyl)(n+1)
Comment(s)
  • The description (official name) varies according to the source of the enzyme and the nature of its synthetic product.
  • Glycogen synthase from animal tissues is a complex of a catalytic subunit and the protein glycogenin.
  • The enzyme requires glucosylated glycogenin as a primer; this is the reaction product of EC 2.4.1.186.
  • A similar enzyme utilizes ADP-glucose (cf. EC 2.4.1.21).
