- UDP-glucose + a flavonol UDP + a flavonol 3-O-beta-D-glucoside
This enzyme participates in flavonoid biosynthesis.
This enzyme belongs to the family of glycosyltransferases, specifically the hexosyltransferases. The systematic name of this enzyme class is UDP-glucose:flavonol 3-O-D-glucosyltransferase. Other names in common use include:
- uridine diphosphoglucose-flavonol 3-O-glucosyltransferase,
- UDP-glucose:flavonol 3-O-glucosyltransferase, and
- UDP-glucose:flavonoid 3-O-glucosyltransferase (UFGT).
Among those, UFGT is divided into UDP-glucose: Flavonoid 3-O-glucosyltransferase (UF3GT) and UDP-glucose: Flavonoid 5-O-glucosyltransferase (UF5GT), which are responsible for the glucosylation of anthocyanins to produce stable molecules.
