- Uridine Diphosphate
- Accession Number
A uracil nucleotide containing a pyrophosphate group esterified to C5 of the sugar moiety.
Drug Drug Description Uridine diphosphate glucose A key intermediate in carbohydrate metabolism. Serves as a precursor of glycogen, can be metabolized into UDPgalactose and UDPglucuronic acid which can then be incorporated into polysaccharides as galactose and... UDP-alpha-D-glucuronic acid A nucleoside diphosphate sugar which serves as a source of glucuronic acid for polysaccharide biosynthesis. It may also be epimerized to UDP iduronic acid, which donates iduronic acid to polysaccharides.... Galactose-uridine-5'-diphosphate A nucleoside diphosphate sugar which can be epimerized into UDPglucose for entry into the mainstream of carbohydrate metabolism. Serves as a source of galactose in the synthesis of lipopolysaccharides, cerebrosides,...
