Accepted name: rhamnogalacturonan I rhamnosyltransferase
Reaction: UDP-β-L-rhamnose + α-D-galacturonosyl-[(1→2)-α-L-rhamnosyl-(1→4)-α-D-galacturonosyl]n = UDP + [(1→2)-α-L-rhamnosyl-(1→4)-α-D-galacturonosyl]n+1
Other name(s): RRT; RG I rhamnosyltransferase
Systematic name: UDP-β-L-rhamnose:rhamnogalacturonan I 4-rhamnosyltransferase (configuration-inverting)
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from Vigna angularis (azuki beans), participates in the biosynthesis of rhamnogalacturonan type I. It does not require any metal ions, and prefers substrates with a degree of polymerization larger than 7.
