Altered architecture of substrate binding region defines the unique specificity of UDP-GalNAc 4-epimerases.


UDP-hexose 4-epimerases play a pivotal role in lipopolysaccharide (LPS) biosynthesis and Leloir pathway. These epimerases are classified into three groups based on whether they recognize nonacetylated UDP-hexoses (Group 1), both N-acetylated and nonacetylated UDP-hexoses (Group 2) or only N-acetylated UDP-hexoses (Group 3). Although the catalysis has been… (More)
