EC 2.4.1.170     
Accepted name: isoflavone 7-O-glucosyltransferase
Reaction: UDP-glucose + an isoflavone = UDP + an isoflavone 7-O-β-D-glucoside

Other name(s): uridine diphosphoglucose-isoflavone 7-O-glucosyltransferase; UDPglucose-favonoid 7-O-glucosyltransferase; UDPglucose:isoflavone 7-O-glucosyltransferase
Systematic name: UDP-glucose:isoflavone 7-O-β-D-glucosyltransferase
Comments: The 4′-methoxy isoflavones biochanin A and formononetin and, more slowly, the 4′-hydroxyisoflavones genistein and daidzein, can act as acceptors. The enzyme does not act on isoflavanones, flavones, flavanones, flavanols or coumarins.
