ENZYME entry: EC 2.4.1.22

Accepted Name
Lactose synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
N-acetyllactosamine synthase.
UDP-galactose--glucose galactosyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
UDP-alpha-D-galactose + D-glucose <=> UDP + lactose
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme is a complex of 2 proteins A and B.
  • In the absence of the B protein (alpha-lactalbumin) the enzyme catalyzes the transfer of galactose from UDP-galactose to N-acetylglucosamine (cf. EC 2.4.1.90).
