- GTP + alpha-D-glucose 1-phosphate diphosphate + GDP-glucose
This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically those transferring phosphorus-containing nucleotide groups (nucleotidyltransferases). The systematic name of this enzyme class is GTP:alpha-D-glucose-1-phosphate guanylyltransferase. Other names in common use include GDP glucose pyrophosphorylase, and guanosine diphosphoglucose pyrophosphorylase. This enzyme participates in starch and sucrose metabolism.
