poly[(1->4)-beta-D-glucuronosyl-(1->4)-N-sulfo-alpha-D-glucosaminyl] glucurono-5-epimerase
Epimerization of D-glucuronate in heparosan-N-sulfate to L-iduronate. [RN:R04389]
The enzyme acts on D-glucosyluronate residues in N-sulfated heparosan polymers, converting them to L-iduronate, thus modifying the polymer to heparan-N-sulfate. The enzyme requires that at least the N-acetylglucosamine residue linked to C-4 of the substrate has been deacetylated and N-sulfated, and activity is highest with fully N-sulfated substrate. It does not act on glucuronate residues that are O-sulfated or are adjacent to N-acetylglucosamine residues that are O-sulfated at the 6 position. Thus the epimerization from D-glucuronate to L-iduronate occurs after N-sulfation of glucosamine residues but before O-sulfation. Not identical with EC chondroitin-glucuronate 5-epimerase or with EC, heparosan-glucuronate 5-epimerase.
