AccessionGenProp0143
NameLeloir pathway (galactose/glucose interconversion)
TypePATHWAY
DescriptionThe Leloir pathway can interconvert galactose and glucose, often for galactose degradation. It tends to be found in the Firmicutes. It includes galactokinase, galactose-1-P uridylyltransferase, and UDP-galactose 4-epimerase.
