The Chemical Reactions and Pathways Involving Carbohydrates Any of a Group of Organic Compounds Based of the General Formula Cx(h2o)y. Includes the Formation of Carbohydrate Derivatives by the Addition of a Carbohydrate Residue to Another Molecule.
The Chemical Reactions and Pathways Resulting in the Formation of Udp N Acetylglucosamine a Substance Composed of N Acetylglucosamine a Common Structural Unit of Oligosaccharides in Glycosidic Linkage with Uridine Diphosphate.
The Chemical Reactions and Pathways Including Anabolism and Catabolism by Which Living Organisms Transform Chemical Substances. Metabolic Processes Typically Transform Small Molecules But Also Include Macromolecular Processes Such As DNA Repair and Replication and Protein Synthesis and Degradation.
Catalysis of the Transfer of a Group E.g. a Methyl Group Glycosyl Group Acyl Group Phosphorus Containing or Other Groups From One Compound (generally Regarded As the Donor) to Another Compound (generally Regarded As the Acceptor). Transferase Is the Systematic Name For Any Enzyme of EC Class 2.
Interacting Selectively and Non Covalently with Any Carbohydrate Which Includes Monosaccharides Oligosaccharides and Polysaccharides As Well As Substances Derived From Monosaccharides by Reduction of the Carbonyl Group (alditols) by Oxidation of One or More Hydroxy Groups to Afford the Corresponding Aldehydes Ketones or Carboxylic Acids or by Replacement of One or More Hydroxy Group(s) by a Hydrogen Atom. Cyclitols Are Generally Not Regarded As Carbohydrates.
