Abstract

Background: UDP-glucose dehydrogenase (UGDH) mutants were engineered to perturb hexamer:dimer quaternary structure equilibrium. Results: Dimeric species of UGDH have reduced activity in vitro and in supporting hyaluronan production by cultured cells. Conclusion: Only dynamic UGDH hexamers support robust cellular function. Significance: Manipulation of UGDH activity by hexamer stabilization may offer new therapeutic options in cancer and other pathologies.
