Accepted name: flavanone 7-O-β-glucosyltransferase
Reaction: UDP-glucose + a flavanone = UDP + a flavanone 7-O-β-D-glucoside
Other name(s): uridine diphosphoglucose-flavanone 7-O-glucosyltransferase; naringenin 7-O-glucosyltransferase; hesperetin 7-O-glucosyl-transferase
Systematic name: UDP-glucose:flavanone 7-O-β-D-glucosyltransferase
Comments: Naringenin and hesperetin can act as acceptors. No action on flavones or flavonols.
