Accepted name: α-maltose-1-phosphate synthase
Reaction: ADP-α-D-glucose + α-D-glucose-1-phosphate = ADP + α-maltose-1-phosphate
Glossary: maltose = α-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→4)-D-glucose
Other name(s): glgM (gene name)
Systematic name: ADP-α-D-glucose:α-D-glucose-1-phosphate 4-α-D-glucosyltransferase (configuration-retaining)
Comments: The enzyme, found in Mycobacteria, can also use UDP-α-D-glucose with much lower catalytic efficiency.
