ⓘ UTP-glucose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase

UTP - glucose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase also known as glucose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase is an enzyme involved in carbohydrate metabolism. It synthesizes UDP-glucose from glucose-1-phosphate and UTP, i.e.,

glucose-1-phosphate + UTP ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } UDP-glucose + pyrophosphate

UTP - glucose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase is an enzyme found in all three domains, as it is a key player in glycogenesis and cell wall synthesis. Its role in Sugar metabolism has been widely studied in plants to understand plant growth and increase agricultural production. Recently, the human UTP - glucose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase have been studied and kristallizuetsya, revealing different types of regulation than other organisms previously studied. Its value is derived from the use of UDP-glucose and galactose metabolism, glycogen synthesis of glycoprotein and glycolipid synthesis.
