FunFam 41: Glycogen [starch] synthase

There are 1 EC terms in this cluster

Please note: EC annotations are assigned to the full protein sequence rather than individual protein domains. Since a given protein can contain multiple domains, it is possible that some of the annotations below come from additional domains that occur in the same protein, but have been classified elsewhere in CATH.

Note: The search results have been sorted with the annotations that are found most frequently at the top of the list. The results can be filtered by typing text into the search box at the top of the table.

Glycogen(starch) synthase. [EC:]
UDP-alpha-D-glucose + ((1->4)-alpha-D-glucosyl)(n) = UDP + ((1->4)-alpha- D-glucosyl)(n+1).
  • The description (official name) varies according to the source of the enzyme and the nature of its synthetic product.
  • Glycogen synthase from animal tissues is a complex of a catalytic subunit and the protein glycogenin.
  • The enzyme requires glucosylated glycogenin as a primer; this is the reaction product of EC
  • A similar enzyme utilizes ADP-glucose (cf. EC
