Namebiosynthesis of UDP-N-acetyl-D-mannosamine (UDP-ManNAc)
DescriptionUDP-ManNAc is a donor of N-acetylmannose for polysaccharide biosynthesis and a precursor of other sugars such as N-acetylmannosaminic acid, N-acetylfucosamine. The final enzyme, UDP-N-acetylglucosamine 2-epimerase carries a variety of gene symbols (WecB, gne, RffE, FnlC) depending on its context.
