N-Acetylglucosamine-1-phosphate uridyltransferase (GlmU) from Escherichia coli K12 is a bifunctional enzyme that catalyzes both the acetyltransfer and uridyltransfer reactions in the prokaryotic UDP-GlcNAc biosynthetic pathway. In this study, we report the broad substrate specificity of the pyrophosphorylase domain of GlmU during its uridyltransfer reaction and the substrate priority is ranked in the following order: UTP > dUTP > dTTP >> CTP > dATP/dm(6) ATP. This pyrophosphorylase domain of GlmU is also a tool to synthesize UDP-GlcNAc analogs, two examples of which were synthesized herein in multiple mg scale in vitro.
