Accepted name: 6G-fructosyltransferase
Reaction: [1-β-D-fructofuranosyl-(2→1)-]m+1-α-D-glucopyranoside + [1-β-D-fructofuranosyl-(2→1)-]n-α-D-glucopyranoside = [1-β-D-fructofuranosyl-(2→1)-]m-α-D-glucopyranoside + [1-β-D-fructofuranosyl-(2→1)-]n-β-D-fructofuranosyl-(2→6)-α-D-glucopyranoside (m > 0; n ≥ 0)
Glossary: [1-β-D-fructofuranosyl-(2→1)-]n-α-D-glucopyranoside = inulin
Other name(s): fructan:fructan 6G-fructosyltransferase; 1F(1-β-D-fructofuranosyl)m sucrose:1F(1-β-D-fructofuranosyl)nsucrose 6G-fructosyltransferase; 6G-FFT; 6G-FT; 6G-fructotransferase
Systematic name: 1F-oligo[β-D-fructofuranosyl-(2→1)-]sucrose 6G-β-D-fructotransferase
Comments: Inulins are polysaccharides consisting of linear or branched D-fructofuranosyl chains attached to the fructosyl residue of sucrose by a β(2→1) linkage. This enzyme catalyses the transfer of the terminal (2→1)-linked -D-fructosyl group of an inulin chain onto O-6 position of the glucose residue of another inulin molecule [1]. For example, if 1-kestose [1F-(β-D-fructofuranosyl)sucrose] is both the donor and recipient in the reaction shown above, i.e., if m = 1 and n = 1, then the products will be sucrose and 6G-di-β-D-fructofuranosylsucrose. In this notation, the superscripts F and G are used to specify whether the fructose or glucose residue of the sucrose carries the substituent. Alternatively, this may be indicated by the presence and/or absence of primes (see Sucrose cannot be a donor substrate in the reaction (i.e. m cannot be zero) and inulin cannot act as an acceptor. Side reactions catalysed are transfer of a β-D-fructosyl group between compounds of the structure 1F-(1-β-D-fructofuranosyl)m-6G-(1-β-D-fructofuranosyl)n sucrose, where m ≥ 0 and n = 1 for the donor, and m ≥ 0 and n ≥ 0 for the acceptor.
