Uridine Diphosphoglucuronic Acid

alpha-D-Glucopyranuronic acid, 1-P'-ester with uridine 5'-(trihydrogen diphosphate)

A nucleoside diphosphate sugar which serves as a source of glucuronic acid for polysaccharide biosynthesis. It may also be epimerized to UDP iduronic acid, which donates iduronic acid to polysaccharides. In animals, UDP glucuronic acid is used for formation of many glucosiduronides with various aglycones.
