Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A membrane preparation from Enterococcus hirae contained UDP and methyl-UDP (mUDP) monosaccharides. This preparation, when incubated with combinations of folic acid, L-serine, and S-adenosyl-L-methionine in a reaction system containing UDP-glucose, promoted synthesis of certain mUDP sugars. Folic acid and serine produced mUDP-glucose and mUDP-rhamnose; S-adenosylmethionine produced mUDP-glucose, mUDP-mannose, and mUDP-fucose.
