Accepted name: vitexin β-glucosyltransferase
Reaction: UDP-glucose + vitexin = UDP + vitexin 2′′-O-β-D-glucoside
Other name(s): uridine diphosphoglucose-vitexin 2′′-glucosyltransferase
Systematic name: UDP-glucose:vitexin 2′′-O-β-D-glucosyltransferase
Comments: Vitexin is a flavonoid from Cannabis sativa (hemp) and some populations of Silene alba.
