(protein-PII) uridylyltransferase

(protein-PII) uridylyltransferase

In enzymology, a [protein-PII] uridylyltransferase (EC number| is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

:UTP + [protein-PII] ightleftharpoons diphosphate + uridylyl- [protein-PII]

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are UTP and [protein-PII] , whereas its two products are diphosphate and [uridylyl- [protein-PII] .

This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically those transferring phosphorus-containing nucleotide groups (nucleotidyltransferases). The systematic name of this enzyme class is UTP: [protein-PII] uridylyltransferase. Other names in common use include PII uridylyl-transferase, and uridyl removing enzyme. This enzyme participates in two-component system - general.
