silencing of UGDH decreases glycosaminoglycan synthesis causing severe embryonic malformations because of defective gastrulation process. Overexpression of the enzyme from Xenopus laevis in human smooth muscle cells increases the accumulation of hyaluronan

the abundance of enzyme mRNA in pistils is more than 3fold greater than that in other parts, and the abundance in stamens and calyx tubes is relatively high compared with that in sepals and petals
Manually annotated by BRENDA team
changes in the mRNA level during peach fruit development correspond to changes in the amount of cell wall material and the cell wall uronic acid content. These are greater in the fruits of the commercial cultivars compared with the Japanese native peach cultivars, and the expression of enzyme is higher in the fruits of the commercial cultivars
