Nameglucosylglycerol biosynthesis
TypePATHWAY
DescriptionGlucosylglycerol is an osmolyte, a solute compatible with biological function inside cells that serves as an osmoprotectant. Other osmolytes include trehalose, sucrose, and glycine betaine and other betaines. Betaines offer stronger osmoprotection than glucosylglycerol but are nitrogen-requiring. The key enzyme, glucosylglycerol-phosphate synthase, uses ADP-glucose + sn-glycerol 3-phosphate. Glucose-1-phosphate adenylyltransferase, which synthesizes ADP-glucose, is therefore included in this property although it also has other roles, such as in glycogen biosynthesis.
