transferase

 [trans´fer-ās]
an enzyme that catalyzes the transfer, from one molecule to another, of a chemical group that does not exist in free state during the transfer.

transferase

(trăns′fə-rās′, -rāz′)
n.
Any of various enzymes that catalyze the transfer of a chemical group, such as a phosphate or amine, from one molecule to another.

transferase

Any enzyme that catalyses the movement of atoms or groups of atoms from one molecule to another. A kinase adds a phosphate group to a substrate such as an amino acid.

transferase

any enzyme that catalyses the transfer of a chemical group such as amino, methyl or alkyl from one SUBSTRATE to another substrate.
