L-ascorbate biosynthesis VI

Vitamin C, a reducing agent and antioxidant, is a cofactor in reactions catalyzed by copper-dependent monooxygenases and iron-dependent dioxygenases. It is synthesized, in vertebrates having this capacity, from d-glucuronate. The latter is formed through direct hydrolysis of uridine diphosphate (UDP)-glucuronate by enzyme(s) bound to the endoplasmic reticulum membrane, sharing many properties with, and most likely identical to, UDP-glucuronosyltransferases.
