, a cytokinin 7-beta-glucosyltransferase
is an enzyme
the chemical reaction
- UDP-glucose + N6-alkylaminopurine UDP + N6-alkylaminopurine-7-beta-D-glucoside
Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are UDP-glucose and N6-alkylaminopurine, whereas its two products are UDP and N6-alkylaminopurine-7-beta-D-glucoside.
This enzyme belongs to the family of glycosyltransferases, specifically the hexosyltransferases. The systematic name of this enzyme class is UDP-glucose:zeatin 7-glucosyltransferase. Other names in common use include uridine diphosphoglucose-zeatin 7-glucosyltransferase, and cytokinin 7-glucosyltransferase.
