uridine diphosphate

uridine diphosphate
uridine diphosphate also uridine 5'-diphosphate -'fīv-'prīm- n UDP

* * *

(UDP) a nucleotide, the 5′-pyrophosphate of uridine, which serves as a carrier for hexoses, hexosamines, and hexuronic acids in the synthesis of glycogen, glycoproteins, and glycosaminoglycans. UDPglucose and UDP-N-acetylglucosamine are the parent compounds from which are synthesized the other UDP-linked hexoses, hexosamines, and hexuronic acids. See also specific UDP-linked compounds (e.g., UDPgalactose).
