ENZYME entry: EC 2.4.1.242

Accepted Name
NDP-glucose--starch glucosyltransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
GBSS.
GBSSI.
GBSSII.
Granule-bound starch synthase.
Granule-bound starch synthase I.
Granule-bound starch synthase II.
NDPglucose-starch glucosyltransferase.
Starch granule-bound nucleoside diphosphate glucose-starch glucosyltransferase.
Starch synthase II.
Waxy protein.
Reaction catalysed
NDP-glucose + (1,4-alpha-D-glucosyl)(n) <=> NDP + (1,4-alpha-D-glucosyl)(n+1)
Comment(s)
  • Unlike EC 2.4.1.11 and EC 2.4.1.21 which use UDP-glucose and ADP- glucose, respectively, this enzyme can use either UDP- or ADP- glucose.
  • Mutants that lack the Wx (waxy) allele cannot produce this enzyme, which plays an important role in the normal synthesis of amylose.
  • In such mutants, only amylopectin is produced in the endosperm or pollen.
