EC 2.4.1.78     
Accepted name: phosphopolyprenol glucosyltransferase
Reaction: UDP-glucose + polyprenyl phosphate = UDP + polyprenylphosphate-glucose
Other name(s): uridine diphosphoglucose-polyprenol monophosphate glucosyltransferase; UDP-glucose:polyprenol monophosphate glucosyltransferase
Systematic name: UDP-glucose:phosphopolyprenol D-glucosyltransferase
Comments: Ficaprenyl phosphate is the best substrate; other polyprenols can also act as substrates, but more slowly.
