cellulose synthase (UDP-forming) activity

Known as: 1,4-beta-glucan synthase activity, beta-1,4-glucosyltransferase activity, UDPglucose:1,4-beta-D-glucan 4-beta-D-glucosyltransferase activity 
Catalysis of the reaction: UDP-glucose + ((1,4)-beta-D-glucosyl)(n) = UDP + ((1,4)-beta-D-glucosyl)(n+1). [EC:2.4.1.12]
