Enzyme Commission Primary Name: UDP-sugar diphosphatase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: nucleosidediphosphate-sugar pyrophosphatase, nucleosidediphosphate-sugar diphosphatase, UDP-sugar hydrolase, UDP-sugar pyrophosphatase
Enzyme Commission Summary:
A divalent cation is required for activity. UDP-sugar is the best substrate, although other nucleoside-sugar diphosphates are used as substrates with similar Km values but much lower maximum velocities. Thus, this enzyme has a specificity distinct from that of ADP-sugar diphosphatase ( EC 22.214.171.124). Some but not all enzymes of this class also appear to have 5′-nucleotidase (see EC 126.96.36.199) activity.
