Other name(s): raffinose (raffinose donor) galactosyltransferase; raffinose:raffinose α-galactosyltransferase; raffinose—raffinose α-galactotransferase
Systematic name: raffinose:raffinose α-
Comments: The 3
position of raffinose can also act as galactosyl acceptor; the enzyme is involved in the accumulation of the tetrasaccharides lychnose and isolychnose in the leaves of F Cerastium arvense and other plants of the family Caryophyllaceae during late autumn.
