KEGG ENZYME: 2.4.1.366

Entry
EC 2.4.1.366                Enzyme                                 
Name

ginsenoside F1 6-O-glucosyltransferase;
UGTPg101 (gene name)

Class

Transferases;
Glycosyltransferases;
Hexosyltransferases

Sysname

UDP-alpha-D-glucose:ginsenoside F1 6-O-glucosyltransferase

Reaction(IUBMB)
UDP-alpha-D-glucose + ginsenoside F1 = UDP + (20S)-ginsenoside Rg1 [RN:R12387]
Reaction(KEGG) Substrate
UDP-alpha-D-glucose [CPD:C00029];
ginsenoside F1 [CPD:C20780]
Product Comment
The enzyme, characterized from the plant Panax ginseng, glucosylates the C-6 position of ginsenoside F1. The enzyme also glucosylates the C-20 position of protopanaxatriol, which forms ginsenoside F1 (cf. EC 2.4.1.363, ginsenoside 20-O-glucosyltransferase). However, unlike EC 2.4.1.367, ginsenoside 6-O-glucosyltransferase, it is not able to glucosylate the C-6 position of protopanaxatriol when position C-20 is not glucosylated.
