Accepted name: β-D-glucosyl crocetin β-1,6-glucosyltransferase
Reaction: (1) UDP-α-D-glucose + β-D-glucosyl crocetin = UDP + β-D-gentiobiosyl crocetin
(2) UDP-α-D-glucose + bis(β-D-glucosyl) crocetin = UDP + β-D-gentiobiosyl β-D-glucosyl crocetin
(3) UDP-α-D-glucose + β-D-gentiobiosyl β-D-glucosyl crocetin = UDP + crocin

Glossary: crocin = bis(β-D-gentiobiosyl) crocetin
crocetin = (2E,4E,6E,8E,10E,12E,14E)-2,6,11,15-tetramethylhexadeca-2,4,6,8,10,12,14-heptaenedioate
Other name(s): UGT94E5; UDP-glucose:crocetin glucosyl ester glucosyltransferasee
Systematic name: UDP-α-D-glucose:β-D-glucosyl crocetin β-1,6-glucosyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the plant Gardenia jasminoides, adds a glucose to several crocetin glycosyl esters, but not to crocetin (cf. EC, crocetin glucosyltransferase).
