Other name(s): sugar-1-phosphate nucleotidyltransferase; NDP-aldose phosphorylase; glucose 1-phosphate inosityltransferase; NDP sugar phosphorylase; nucleoside diphosphosugar phosphorylase; sugar phosphate nucleotidyltransferase; nucleoside diphosphate sugar:orthophosphate nucleotidyltransferase; sugar nucleotide phosphorylase; NDP:aldose-1-phosphate nucleotidyltransferase

Systematic name: NDP:α-D-aldose-1-phosphate nucleotidyltransferase

Comments: The enzyme works on a variety of α-D-aldose 1-phosphates and β-L-aldose 1-phosphates (which have the same anomeric configuration as the former; see 2-Carb-6.2).
