EC 2.7.7.83     
Accepted name: UDP-N-acetylgalactosamine diphosphorylase
Reaction: UTP + N-acetyl-α-D-galactosamine 1-phosphate = diphosphate + UDP-N-acetyl-α-D-galactosamine
Systematic name: UTP:N-acetyl-α-D-galactosamine-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme from plants and animals also has activity toward N-acetyl-α-D-glucosamine 1-phosphate (cf. EC 2.7.7.23, UDP-N-acetylglucosamine diphosphorylase) [1,2].
