Belongs to the UDPGP type 1 family.
UGP2 (UDP-glucose pyrophosphorylase 2), also known as UDPG, UGPP2, UDPGP2 or pHC379, is an evolutionarily conserved protein belonging to the UDPGP type 1 family of proteins. Localizing to the cytoplasm, UGP2 forms homooligomers and is believed to function as a glucosyl donor in cellular metabolic pathways. More specifically, UGP2 catalyzes the transfer of a glucose moiety from glucose-1-phosphate to UTP, producing a diphosphate and UDP-glucose. UDP-glucose is an essential precursor for the synthesis of polysaccharides; in liver and muscle, UDP-glucose is a precursor of glycogen, in liver UDP-glucose is also a precursor of UDP-glucuronate, and in lactating mammary gland UDP-glucose is converted to UDP-galactose and then to lactose.
