EC 2.4.1.240     
Accepted name: flavonol-3-O-glycoside glucosyltransferase
Reaction: UDP-glucose + a flavonol 3-O-β-D-glucosyl-(1→2)-β-D-glucoside = UDP + a flavonol 3-O-β-D-glucosyl-(1→2)-β-D-glucosyl-(1→2)-β-D-glucoside

Systematic name: UDP-glucose:flavonol-3-O-β-D-glucosyl-(1→2)-β-D-glucoside 2′′′-O-β-D-glucosyltransferase
Comments: One of three specific glucosyltransferases in pea (Pisum sativum) thatsuccessively 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 2.4.1.91 flavonol 3-O-glucosyltransferase, and EC 2.4.1.239 flavonol-3-O-glucoside glucosyltransferase).
