GeneCards Summary for GLCE Gene
GLCE (Glucuronic Acid Epimerase) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Glycosaminoglycan metabolism and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include racemase and epimerase activity, acting on carbohydrates and derivatives and UDP-glucuronate 5-epimerase activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GLCE Gene
Converts D-glucuronic acid residues adjacent to N-sulfate sugar residues to L-iduronic acid residues, both in maturing heparan sulfate (HS) and heparin chains. This is important for further modifications that determine the specificity of interactions between these glycosaminoglycans and proteins.
