Accepted name: zeatin O-β-D-xylosyltransferase
Reaction: UDP-D-xylose + zeatin = UDP + O-β-D-xylosylzeatin
Glossary: zeatin = (E)-2-methyl-4-(9H-purin-6-ylamino)but-2-en-1-ol = (E)-N6-(4-hydroxy-3-methylbut-2-enyl)adenine
Other name(s): uridine diphosphoxylose-zeatin xylosyltransferase; zeatin O-xylosyltransferase
Systematic name: UDP-D-xylose:zeatin O-β-D-xylosyltransferase
Comments: Does not act on UDP-glucose (cf. EC alizarin 2-β-glucosyltransferase).
