EC 2.4.1.161 is Orphan !
Common name :Oligosaccharide 4-alpha-D-glucosyltransferase

Systematic name :(1->4)-alpha-D-glucan:(1->4)-alpha-D-glucan 4-alpha-D-glucosyltransferase

Other names :1,4-alpha-glucan:1,4-alpha-glucan 4-alpha-glucosyltransferase
Amylase III
1,4-alpha-D-glucan:1,4-alpha-D-glucan 4-alpha-D-glucosyltransferase
Alpha-1,4-transglucosylase
Comments :The enzyme acts on amylose, amylopectin, glycogen and maltooligosaccharides. No detectable free glucose is formed, indicating the enzyme does not act as a hydrolase. The enzyme from the bacterium Cellvibrio japonicus has the highest activity with maltotriose as a donor, and also accepts maltose (3), while the enzyme from amoeba does not accept maltose (1,2). Oligosaccharides with 1->6 linkages cannot function as donors, but can act as acceptors (3). Unlike EC 2.4.1.25, 4-alpha-glucanotransferase, this enzyme can transfer only a single glucosyl residue.
