Systematic name: Alternating UDP-N-acetyl-α-D-glucosamine:β-D-glucuronosyl-(1→3)-[nascent hyaluronan] 4-N-acetyl-β-D-glucosaminyltransferase and UDP-α-D-glucuronate:N-acetyl-β-D-glucosaminyl-(1→4)-[nascent hyaluronan] 3-β-D-glucuronosyltransferase (configuration-inverting)
Comments: The enzyme from Streptococcus Group A and Group C requires Mg2+. The enzyme adds GlcNAc to nascent hyaluronan when the non-reducing end is GlcA, but it adds GlcA when the non-reducing end is GlcNAc [3]. The enzyme is highly specific for UDP-GlcNAc and UDP-GlcA; no copolymerization is observed if either is replaced by UDP-Glc, UDP-Gal, UDP-GalNAc or UDP-GalA. Similar enzymes have been found in a variety of organisms.

Systematic name: GDP-β-L-fucose:N4-{β-D-GlcNAc-(1→2)-α-D-Man-(1→3)-[β-D-GlcNAc-(1→2)-α-D-Man-(1→6)]-β-D-Man-(1→4)-β-D-GlcNAc-(1→4)-β-D-GlcNAc}-L-asparaginyl-[protein] 3-α-L-fucosyltransferase (configuration-retaining)
Comments: Requires Mn2+. The enzyme transfers to N-linked oligosaccharide structures (N-glycans), generally with a specificity for N-glycans with one unsubstituted non-reducing terminal GlcNAc residue. This enzyme catalyses a reaction similar to that of EC, glycoprotein 6-α-L-fucosyltransferase, but transferring the L-fucosyl group from GDP-β-L-fucose to form an α1,3-linkage rather than an α1,6-linkage. The N-glycan products of this enzyme are present in plants, insects and some other invertebrates (e.g., Schistosoma, Haemonchus, Lymnaea).
