Protein name
RecName: Full=UDP-N-acetylglucosamine 2-epimerase;
AltName: Full=UDP-GlcNAc-2-epimerase;
Gene name

Comments [?]

Function Catalyzes the reversible epimerization at C-2 of UDP-N-acetylglucosamine (UDP-GlcNAc) and thereby provides bacteria with UDP-N-acetylmannosamine (UDP-ManNAc), the activated donor of ManNAc residues.
Catalytic activity RHEA:17213: UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine = UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-mannosamine
Pathway Bacterial outer membrane biogenesis; enterobacterial common antigen biosynthesis.
Subunit Homodimer.
Subcellular location Cytoplasm.
Similarity Belongs to the UDP-N-acetylglucosamine 2-epimerase family.
