Class: glycosyl_donor_substrate

A molecule that is classified primarily by its capacity to act as the substrate of a glycosyl transferase that transfers a carbohydrate_residue or carbohydrate moiety from this molecule to another molecule. Although glycosyl transferases can catalyze bot the forward and backward reaction, the donor and acceptor are defined for the usual direction of the metabolic flux (i.e., biosynthesis of a glycan).
