Uridine Diphosphate Glucose

Also known as: UDP-glucose, UDP-alpha-D-Glucose, 133-89-1, CHEBI:52249, UDP-D-glucose, UDPG, URIDINE-5'-DIPHOSPHATE-GLUCOSE, Uridine diphosphoglucose
Molecular Formula: C15H24N2O17P2   Molecular Weight: 566.301784   InChIKey: HSCJRCZFDFQWRP-JZMIEXBBSA-N
A key intermediate in carbohydrate metabolism. Serves as a precursor of glycogen, can be metabolized into UDPgalactose and UDPglucuronic acid which can then be incorporated into polysaccharides as galactose and glucuronic acid. Also serves as a precursor of sucrose lipopolysaccharides, and glycosphingolipids.   From: MeSH
