UTP-glucose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase is an enzyme associated with glycogenesis. It synthesizes UDP-glucose from glucose-1-phosphate and UTP; i.e., glucose-1-phosphate + UTP↔ UDP-glucose + pyrophosphate.
UDPG pyrophosphorylase, Native (Baker's Yeast)
Uridine-5′-diphosphoglucose pyrophosphorylase has been used in assays to determine the concentration of pyrophosphate in human urine samples.
