- Linamarin synthase
enzymology, a linamarin synthase (EC number|18.104.22.168) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:UDP-glucose + 2-hydroxy-2-methylpropanenitrile UDP + linamarin
This enzyme belongs to the family of
glycosyltransferases, specifically the hexosyltransferases. The systematic name of this enzyme class is UDP-glucose:2-hydroxy-2-methylpropanenitrile beta-D-glucosyltransferase. Other names in common use include uridine diphosphoglucose-ketone glucosyltransferase, uridine diphosphate-glucose-ketone cyanohydrin, beta-glucosyltransferase, UDP glucose ketone cyanohydrin glucosyltransferase, UDP-glucose:ketone cyanohydrin beta-glucosyltransferase, and uridine diphosphoglucose-ketone cyanohydrin glucosyltransferase.
CAS registry numberfor this enzyme class is CAS registry|37277-68-2."
