Accepted name: nucleoside-triphosphate-aldose-1-phosphate nucleotidyltransferase
Reaction: nucleoside triphosphate + α-D-aldose 1-phosphate = diphosphate + NDP-hexose
Other name(s): NDP hexose pyrophosphorylase; hexose 1-phosphate nucleotidyltransferase; hexose nucleotidylating enzyme; nucleoside diphosphohexose pyrophosphorylase; hexose-1-phosphate guanylyltransferase; GTP:α-D-hexose-1-phosphate guanylyltransferase; GDP hexose pyrophosphorylase; guanosine diphosphohexose pyrophosphorylase; nucleoside-triphosphate-hexose-1-phosphate nucleotidyltransferase; NTP:hexose-1-phosphate nucleotidyltransferase
Systematic name: NTP:α-D-aldose-1-phosphate nucleotidyltransferase
Comments: In decreasing order of activity, guanosine, inosine and adenosine diphosphate hexoses are substrates in the reverse reaction, with either glucose or mannose as the sugar.
