Accepted name: flavonol-3-O-glucoside glucosyltransferase
Reaction: UDP-glucose + a flavonol 3-O-β-D-glucoside = UDP + a flavonol 3-O-β-D-glucosyl-(1→2)-β-D-glucoside

Other name(s): UDP-glucose:flavonol-3-O-glucoside 2′′-O-β-D-glucosyltransferase
Systematic name: UDP-glucose:flavonol-3-O-β-D-glucoside 2′′-O-β-D-glucosyltransferase
Comments: One of three specific glucosyltransferases in pea (Pisum sativum) that successively add a β-D-glucosyl group first to O-3 of kaempferol, and then to O-2 of the previously added glucosyl group giving the 3-O-sophoroside and then the 3-O-sophorotrioside (see also EC, flavonol 3-O-glucosyltransferase and EC, flavonol-3-O-glycoside glucosyltransferase). TDP-glucose can replace UDP-glucose as the glucose donor but the reaction proceeds more slowly.
