Chemical Uridine Diphosphate Glucuronic Acid

Name Uridine Diphosphate Glucuronic Acid
CAS Type 1 Name alpha-D-Glucopyranuronic acid, 1-P'-ester with uridine 5'-(trihydrogen diphosphate)
Equivalent Terms Acid, UDP Glucuronic | Acid, Uridine Diphosphoglucuronic | Diphosphoglucuronic Acid, Uridine | Glucuronic Acid, UDP | UDPGA | UDP Glucuronic Acid | Uridine Diphosphoglucuronic Acid
CAS Registry Number 2616-64-0
Definition 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.
