Glossary: UDP-α-D-GlcNAc3NAcA = UDP-2,3-diacetamido-2,3-dideoxy-α-D-glucuronic acid
UDP-α-D-ManNAc3NAcA = UDP-2,3-diacetamido-2,3-dideoxy-α-D-mannuronic acid
Other name(s): UDP-GlcNAc3NAcA 2-epimerase; UDP-α-D-GlcNAc3NAcA 2-epimerase; 2,3-diacetamido-2,3-dideoxy-α-D-glucuronic acid 2-epimerase; WbpI; WlbD
Systematic name: 2,3-diacetamido-2,3-dideoxy-α-D-glucuronate 2-epimerase
Comments: This enzyme participates in the biosynthetic pathway for UDP-α-D-ManNAc3NAcA (UDP-2,3-diacetamido-2,3-dideoxy-α-D-mannuronic acid), an important precursor of the B-band lipopolysaccharide of Pseudomonas aeroginosa serotype O5 and of the band-A trisaccharide of Bordetella pertussis, both important respiratory pathogens [1]. The enzyme is highly specific as UDP-α-D-GlcNAc, UDP-α-D-GlcNAcA (UDP-2-acetamido-2-deoxy-α-D-glucuronic acid) and UDP-α-D-GlcNAc3NAc (UDP-2,3-diacetamido-2,3-dideoxy-α-D-glucose) cannot act as substrates [1].
