ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
1,2-diacylglycerol 3-alpha-glucosyltransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
1,2-diacylglycerol 3-glucosyltransferase.
UDP-glucose-diacylglycerol glucosyltransferase.
Uridine diphosphoglucose-diacylglycerol glucosyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
UDP-alpha-D-glucose + a 1,2-diacyl-sn-glycerol <=> UDP + a 1,2-diacyl-3-O-(alpha-D-glucopyranosyl)-sn-glycerol
  • The enzyme from the bacterium Acholeplasma laidlawii, which lacks a celll wall, produces the major non-bilayer lipid in the organism.
  • The enzyme from the bacterium Agrobacterium tumefaciens acts under phosphate deprivation, generating glycolipids as surrogates for phospholipids.
  • The enzyme belongs to the GT4 family of configuration-retaining glycosyltransferases.
  • Many diacylglycerols with long-chain acyl groups can act as acceptors.
