ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Poly(glycerol-phosphate) alpha-glucosyltransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
UDP glucose-poly(glycerol-phosphate) alpha-glucosyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
n UDP-alpha-D-glucose + 4-O-(poly((2R)-glycerophospho)-(2R)-glycerophospho)-N-acetyl-beta-D-mannosaminyl-(1->4)-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosaminyl-diphospho-ditrans,octacis-undecaprenol <=> n UDP + 4-O-(poly((2R)-2-alpha-D-glucosyl-1-glycerophospho)-(2R)-glycerophospho)-N-acetyl-beta-D-mannosaminyl-(1->4)-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosaminyl-diphospho-ditrans,octacis-undecaprenol
  • Involved in the biosynthesis of poly glycerol phosphate teichoic acids in bacterial cell walls.
  • This enzyme, isolated from Bacillus subtilis 168, adds an alpha-D- glucose to the free OH groups of the glycerol units.
  • The enzyme has a strong preference for UDP-alpha-glucose as the sugar donor.
  • It has no activity with poly(ribitol phosphate).
