This is almost certainly what you are looking for, but consider that WGS-84 is 
the ellipsoid shape, not the projection. So UTM is now a Transverse Mercator 
projection of the WGS-84 ellipsoid.

There are other EPSG codes that are also for WGS 84. For example:
http://spatialreference.org/ref/epsg/wgs-84-3/ for the 3D equivalent of 4326.
