Accepted name: trehalose 6-phosphate phosphorylase
Reaction: α,α-trehalose 6-phosphate + phosphate = glucose 6-phosphate + β-D-glucose 1-phosphate
Other name(s): trehalose 6-phosphate:phosphate β-D-glucosyltransferase
Systematic name: α,α-trehalose 6-phosphate:phosphate β-D-glucosyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme from Lactococcus lactis is specific for trehalose 6-phosphate. Differs from EC, α,α-trehalose phosphorylase, in that trehalose is not a substrate.
