Biological function
The fructan-fructan-1-fructosyl transferase (FFT) from Cynara scolymus is an enzyme involved in fructan metabolism. Specifically, inulin, a heterogeneous collection of different length fructans, is biosynthesized in vitro from sucrose by the combined action of two fructosyl transferases: Suc:Suc 1-fructosyl transferase and fructan:fructan 1-fructosyl transferase. FFTs elongate a pre-synthesized fructose chains at the expense of another pre-synthesized chain.
