Dextrin 6-glucosyltransferase --> dextrin dextranase

a glucosyltransferase transferring 1,4-alpha-d-glucosyl residues, thus catalyzing the synthesis of dextrans (with 1,6 links between monosaccharide units) from dextrins (with 1,4 links) by glucose transfer.

Synonym: dextrin-dextran transglucosidase, dextrin 6-glucosyltransferase.
