Concept Info

NAME

Transferases

DESCRIPTION

Transferases are enzymes that catalyse the transfer of a functional group from a donor molecule, often a coenzyme, to an acceptor molecule. These include methyltransferases and formyltransferases for transferring single-carbon groups – methyl (CH3) and formyl (CHO) groups respectively – and transaldolases for transferring a three carbon ketol group.
