UDP Galactose Pyrophosphorylase
UTP Hexose 1 Phosphate Uridylyltransferase
An enzyme that catalyzes the synthesis of UDPgalactose from UTP and galactose-1-phosphate. It is present in low levels in fetal and infant liver, but increases with age, thereby enabling galactosemic infants who survive to develop the capacity to metabolize galactose. EC 18.104.22.168.
