ENZYME entry: EC 2.4.1.363

Accepted Name
Ginsenoside 20-O-glucosyltransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
UGT71A27.
Reaction catalysed
UDP-alpha-D-glucose + (20S)-protopanaxadiol <=> UDP + ginsenoside C-K
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, characterized from the plant Panax ginseng, transfers a glucosyl moiety to the free C20(S)-OH group of dammarane derivative substrates, including protopanaxatriol, dammarenediol II, (20S)- ginsenoside Rh2, and (20S)-ginsenoside Rg3.
  • It does not act on the 20R epimer of protopanaxadiol, or on ginsenosides that are glucosylated at the C-6 position, such as ginsenoside Rh1 or ginsenoside Rg2.
