Accepted name: UDP-sulfoquinovose synthase
Reaction: UDP-α-D-sulfoquinovopyranose + H2O = UDP-α-D-glucose + sulfite

Other name(s): sulfite:UDP-glucose sulfotransferase; UDPsulfoquinovose synthase; UDP-6-sulfo-6-deoxyglucose sulfohydrolase
Systematic name: UDP-6-sulfo-6-deoxy-α-D-glucose sulfohydrolase
Comments: Requires NAD+, which appears to oxidize UDP-α-D-glucose to UDP-4-dehydroglucose, which dehydrates to UDP-4-dehydro-6-deoxygluc-5-enose, to which sulfite is added. The reaction is completed when the substrate is rehydrogenated at C-4. The enzyme from Arabidopsis thaliana is specific for UDP-Glc and sulfite.
