Systematic name: sucrose:(1→6)-α-D-glucan 3(6)-α-D-glucosyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme was characterized from the dental caries bacterium Streptococcus mutans. It transfers glucosyl residues from sucrose to either the 6- or the 3-positions of glucose residues in glucans, producing a highly-branched extracellular D-glucan polymers that promote attachment of the bacteria to teeth. Three types of the enzyme have been described; the insoluble polymers produced by GTF-I and GTF-SI contain 85% α(1→3) bonds and 15% α(1→6) bonds, while the soluble polymers produced by GTF-S contain only 30% of α(1→3) bonds and 70% α(1→6) bonds. cf. EC, dextransucrase [5].
