, an oligosaccharide 4-alpha-D-glucosyltransferase
is an enzyme
the chemical reaction
in which the non-reducing terminal alpha-D-glucose
residue is transferred from a 1,4-alpha-D-glucan
to the 4-position of an alpha-D-glucan. This enzyme is useful in hydrolyzing oligosaccharides
This enzyme belongs to the family of glycosyltransferases, specifically the hexosyltransferases. The systematic name of this enzyme class is 1,4-alpha-D-glucan:1,4-alpha-D-glucan 4-alpha-D-glucosyltransferase. Other names in common use include amylase III, and 1,4-alpha-glucan:1,4-alpha-glucan 4-alpha-glucosyltransferase.
