Comments [?]

Function Catalyzes the last two sequential reactions in the de novo biosynthetic pathway for UDP-N-acetylglucosamine (UDP-GlcNAc). The C-terminal domain catalyzes the transfer of acetyl group from acetyl coenzyme A to glucosamine-1-phosphate (GlcN-1-P) to produce N-acetylglucosamine-1-phosphate (GlcNAc-1-P), which is converted into UDP-GlcNAc by the transfer of uridine 5-monophosphate (from uridine 5-triphosphate), a reaction catalyzed by the N-terminal domain.
Catalytic activity RHEA:13725: acetyl-CoA + alpha-D-glucosamine 1-phosphate = CoA + H(+) + N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine 1-phosphate
RHEA:13509: H(+) + N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine 1-phosphate + UTP = diphosphate + UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine
Cofactor Mg(2+)
Note: Binds 1 Mg(2+) ion per subunit.
Pathway Nucleotide-sugar biosynthesis; UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine biosynthesis; N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine 1-phosphate from alpha-D-glucosamine 6-phosphate (route II): step 2/2.
Nucleotide-sugar biosynthesis; UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine biosynthesis; UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine from N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine 1-phosphate: step 1/1.
Bacterial outer membrane biogenesis; LPS lipid A biosynthesis.
Subunit Homotrimer.
Subcellular location Cytoplasm.
Similarity In the N-terminal section; belongs to the N-acetylglucosamine-1-phosphate uridyltransferase family.
In the C-terminal section; belongs to the transferase hexapeptide repeat family.
