|UDP-alpha-D-glucose + glycogenin <=> UDP + alpha-D-glucosylglycogenin|
- The first reaction of this enzyme is to catalyze its own
glucosylation, normally at a specific Tyr of the protein if this
group is free; when the Tyr is replaced by Thr or Phe, the enzyme's
self-glucosylation activity is lost but its intermolecular
transglucosylation ability remains.
- It continues to glucosylate an existing glucosyl group until a length
of about 5-13 residues has been formed.
- Further lengthening of the glycogen chain is then carried out by
- Not highly specific for the donor, using UDP-xylose in addition to
UDP-glucose (although not glucosylating or xylosylating a xylosyl
group so added).
- It can also use CDP-glucose and TDP-glucose, but not ADP-glucose or
- Similarly it is not highly specific for the acceptor, using water
(i.e. hydrolyzing UDP-glucose) among others.
- Various forms of the enzyme exist, and different forms predominate in
- Thus primate liver contains glycogenin-2, of molecular mass 66 kDa,
whereas the more widespread form is glycogenin-1, with a molecular
mass of 38 kDa.
