Mannose-1-phosphate guanylyltransferase

(Science: enzyme) a transferase that catalyses the transfer of gdp to the mannose of mannose-1-phosphate.

Consider also the bifunctional enzyme, phosphomannose isomerase-guanosine diphospho-d-mannose pyrophosphorylase; rfbm has similarity to long-chain, iron-containing alcohol dehydrogenases

registry number: EC 2.7.7.13

Synonym: GDPmannose phosphorylase, gdp mannose pyrophosphorylase, GTP-alpha-d-mannose-1-phosphate guanylyltransferase, gdp-mannose pyrophosphorylase, rfbm gene product, rfbm protein
