Gene: Ugp2 (UDP-glucose pyrophosphorylase 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Ugp2
Name: UDP-glucose pyrophosphorylase 2
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including UTP:glucose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase activity; glucose binding activity; and pyrimidine ribonucleotide binding activity. Predicted to be involved in UDP-glucose metabolic process; glucose 1-phosphate metabolic process; and glycogen metabolic process. Predicted to localize to the cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including adrenal gland; alimentary system; brain; respiratory system; and urinary system. Orthologous to human UGP2 (UDP-glucose pyrophosphorylase 2); PARTICIPATES IN congenital sucrase-isomaltase deficiency pathway; galactokinase deficiency pathway; galactose metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 4,4'-diaminodiphenylmethane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: MGC38262; UDPGP; UGPase; uridindiphosphoglucosepyrophosphorylase 2; UTP--glucose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase
