Abstract

Abstract An enzyme from wheat germ which catalyzes the reaction: UDPG + phenol β-glucoside → UDP + phenol β-gentiobioside has been purified and separated from the enzyme which leads to the formation of glucosides. The enzyme was found to be specific for phenol β-glucosides and substituted phenol β-glucosides (such as arbutin, salicin, p- and m-methoxyphenol glucoside, resorcinol glucoside, and mandelonitrile glucoside). Free sugars, disaccharides, or polysaccharides were not used as substrates.
