EC 2.7.7.59     
Accepted name: [protein-PII] uridylyltransferase
Reaction: UTP + [protein-PII] = diphosphate + uridylyl-[protein-PII]
Other name(s): PII uridylyl-transferase; uridyl removing enzyme
Systematic name: UTP:[protein-PII] uridylyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme uridylylates and de-uridylylates the small trimeric protein PII. The enzymes from Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhimurium have been wrongly identified, in some databases, as EC 2.7.7.12 (UDP-glucose—hexose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase), from which it differs greatly in both reaction catalysed and sequence.
