Accepted name: cellobionic acid phosphorylase
Reaction: 4-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl-D-gluconate + phosphate = α-D-glucose 1-phosphate + D-gluconate
Glossary: 4-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl-D-gluconate = cellobionate
Systematic name: 4-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl-D-gluconate:phosphate α-D-glucosyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme occurs in cellulolytic bacteria and fungi. It catalyses the reversible phosphorolysis of cellobionic acid. In the synthetic direction it produces 4-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl-D-glucuronate from α-D-glucose 1-phosphate and D-glucuronate with low activity
