Udp-Glucuronic Acid


Name: Udp-Glucuronic Acid
Type: small molecule
Groups: experimental
Indication: Not Available
Accession Number: DB03041 ( EXPT03177)
Description: A nucleoside diphosphate sugar which serves as a source of glucuronic acid for polysaccharide biosynthesis. It may also be epimerized to UDP iduronic acid, which donates iduronic acid to polysaccharides. In animals, UDP glucuronic acid is used for formation of many glucosiduronides with various aglycones.
