ENZYME entry: EC 2.4.1.391

Accepted Name
beta-1,2-glucosyltransferase
Reaction catalysed
[(1->2)-beta-D-glucosyl](n) + a D-glucoside <=> [(1->2)-beta-D-glucosyl](n-1) + a beta-D-glucosyl-(1->2)-D-glucoside
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Ignavibacterium album, transfers a glucosyl residue from the non-reducing end of a 1,2-beta- D-glucan to a glucose residue of an acceptor molecule, forming a beta(1,2) linkage.
  • The donor molecule can be as small as sophorose (which contains two glucosyl residues).
  • The enzyme has a very broad specificity for the acceptor, and can act on various aryl- and alkyl-glucosides.
  • In addition, the accepting glucose unit can be in either alpha or beta configuration.
