Mannose-6-phosphate

Mannose-6-phosphate

(Science: biochemistry) mannose derivative formed by phosphorylation in the golgi Complex of certain mannose residues on N glycan chains of lysosomal enzymes.

Believed to function as targetting signal that causes entry of these enzymes to the lysosomes. The receptor (215 kD) is enriched in specialised pre lysosomes.

Relationship between structure and function of glucoes

Is there a possibility that the enzymes are specialized only for utilizing α-D-glucose and not its epimers like mannose,etc.? Is the reason for us being composed of L-amino acids similar to the reason for α-D-glucose to form glycogen and not cellulose (ie because of it's ability ...

Relationship between structure and function of glucoes

this is rather question, why did glucose become the main energy source and not e.g. mannose. That's similar to the question, why are we composed from L-amino acids ;)

Biological Functions of...

... many sugars for signaling purposes: either glycoproteins or proteoglycans. For example: Secretory vesicles in the Golgi cisterna use mostly mannose, galactose, and NAG (N-Acetlyglucosamine) to make the necessary glycoproteins for export. Oh, and all those glycoproteins and glucosamines in ...
