Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Monday, 21 September 2020 is Sucrose-phosphate synthase.
Sucrose-phosphate synthase is a plant enzyme involved in sucrose biosynthesis. Specifically, this enzyme catalyzes the transfer of a hexosyl group from uridine diphosphate glucose (UDP-glucose) to D-fructose 6-phosphate to form UDP and D-sucrose-6-phosphate. This reversible step acts as the key regulatory control point in sucrose biosynthesis, and is an excellent example of various key enzyme regulation strategies such as allosteric control and reversible phosphorylation. This enzyme participates in starch and sucrose metabolism.
This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 00:17 UTC on Monday, 21 September 2020.
