- UTP + 1-phospho-alpha-D-glucuronate diphosphate + UDP-glucuronate
This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically those transferring phosphorus-containing nucleotide groups (nucleotidyltransferases). The systematic name of this enzyme class is UTP:1-phospho-alpha-D-glucuronate uridylyltransferase. Other names in common use include UDP-glucuronate pyrophosphorylase, UDP-D-glucuronic acid pyrophosphorylase, UDP-glucuronic acid pyrophosphorylase, and uridine diphosphoglucuronic pyrophosphorylase. This enzyme participates in pentose and glucuronate interconversions and ascorbate and aldarate metabolism.
