Centella Apiaceae asiatica (L.) Urban is a medicinal plant that contains bioactive ursane-type saponins, such as madecassoside and Saponin biosynthesis asiaticoside. In this work, glucosylation of triterpenoids in C. asiatica was investigated starting with plant ex- Glucosyltransferase tracts. An enzyme
