ENZYME entry: EC 5.1.3.14

Accepted Name
UDP-N-acetylglucosamine 2-epimerase (non-hydrolyzing).
Alternative Name(s)
UDP-GlcNAc-2-epimerase.
UDP-N-acetyl-D-glucosamine 2-epimerase.
Uridine diphosphate-N-acetylglucosamine-2'-epimerase.
Uridine diphospho-N-acetylglucosamine 2'-epimerase.
Uridine diphosphoacetylglucosamine 2'-epimerase.
Reaction catalysed
UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine <=> UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-mannosamine
Comment(s)
  • This bacterial enzyme catalyzes the reversible interconversion of UDP-GlcNAc and UDP-ManNAc.
  • The latter is used in a variety of bacterial polysaccharide biosyntheses.
  • Cf. EC 3.2.1.183.
