Descriptor in English: Glycosyltransferases
Descriptor in Spanish: Glicosiltransferasas
Descriptor in Portuguese: Glicosiltransferases
Descriptor in French: Glycosyltransferase
Entry term(s): Glycoside Transferases
Transferases, Glycoside
Tree number(s): D08.811.913.400
Scope note: Enzymes that catalyze the transfer of glycosyl groups to an acceptor. Most often another carbohydrate molecule acts as an acceptor, but inorganic phosphate can also act as an acceptor, such as in the case of PHOSPHORYLASES. Some of the enzymes in this group also catalyze hydrolysis, which can be regarded as transfer of a glycosyl group from the donor to water. Subclasses include the HEXOSYLTRANSFERASES; PENTOSYLTRANSFERASES; SIALYLTRANSFERASES; and those transferring other glycosyl groups. EC 2.4.
