Accepted name: vancomycin aglycone glucosyltransferase
Reaction: UDP-α-D-glucose + vancomycin aglycone = UDP + devancosaminyl-vancomycin
Glossary: devancosaminyl-vancomycin = vancomycin pseudoaglycone
Other name(s): GtfB (ambiguous)
Systematic name: UDP-α-D-glucose:vancomycin aglycone 48-O-β-glucosyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme from the bacterium Amycolatopsis orientalis is involved in the biosynthesis of the glycopeptide antibiotic chloroeremomycin.
