UDP-glucose pyrophosphorylase (UGP2, gi|183397343) catalyzes the reversible production of UDP-glucose and pyrophosphate from glucose-1-phosphate and UTP and is a key enzyme for carbohydrate metabolism.
Galactose is the hydrolysate of agar/agarose and is utilized by strain PR1 via the enzyme catalytic activities of galactokinase (GalK), UDP-glucose 4-epimerase (GalE), UDP-glucosehexose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase (GalT), UTP-glucose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase (GalU), and phosphoglucomutase (PGM).

The availability of precursors is also important for controlling HA synthesis since UDP-glucose pyrophosphorylase and dehydrogenase are known to be necessary for sustaining HA production [28].
Additionally, Method I has a glycosylation step in which the DNA is previously treated with T4 [beta]-glucosyltransferase and UDP-glucose. In both methods, the unmodified DNA (C) is digested by HpaII and MspI and the methylated DNA (5-mC) is digested only by MspI.

In particular, the invention relates to the inhibition of the enzymatic activity of a UDP-glucose: sinapate glucosyltransferase (SGT) in transgenic plant cells.
It is well known that sucrose hydrolyzes into fructose and glucose by the catalytic action of invertase isoenzymes or converts into uridine diphosphate-glucose (UDP-glucose) and fructose by sucrose synthase (Avigad and Dey, 1997).
