The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: uronate dehydrogenase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: uronate: NAD-oxidoreductase, uronic acid dehydrogenase

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): -4.6782227Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Enzyme Commission Summary:
Requires Mg2+. The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Agrobacterium fabrum C58, participates in oxidative degradation pathways for galacturonate and glucuronate. The 1,5 lactone product is rather stable at cytosolic pH and does not hydrolyse spontaneously at a substantial rate.
