Accepted name: α-1,3-glucan synthase
Reaction: UDP-glucose + [α-
D-glucosyl-(1→3)] = UDP + [α- n D-glucosyl-(1→3)] n+1
Other name(s): uridine diphosphoglucose-1,3-α-glucan glucosyltransferase; 1,3-α-
D-glucan synthase; UDP-glucose:α- D-(1-3)-glucan 3-α- D-glucosyltransferase
Systematic name: UDP-glucose:α-
D-(1→3)-glucan 3-α- D-glucosyltransferase
Comments: A glucan primer is needed to begin the reaction, which brings about elongation of the glucan chains.
