Accepted name: isomaltulose synthase
Reaction: sucrose = 6-O-α-D-glucopyranosyl-D-fructofuranose
Other name(s): isomaltulose synthetase; sucrose α-glucosyltransferase; trehalulose synthase
Systematic name: sucrose glucosylmutase
Comments: The enzyme simultaneously produces isomaltulose (6-O-α-D-glucopyranosyl-D-fructose) and smaller amounts of trehalulose (1-O-α-D-glucopyranosyl-β-D-fructose) from sucrose.
