EC 188.8.131.52 - Heparosan-glucuronate 5-epimerase
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
The enzyme, characterized from the giant African snail Achatina fulica, participates in the biosynthetic pathway of acharan sulfate. Unlike EC 184.108.40.206, heparosan-N-sulfate-glucuronate 5-epimerase, it shows no activity with D-glucuronate residues in heparosan-N-sulfate.
