Accepted name: MMP α-(1→4)-mannosyltransferase
Reaction: GDP-α-D-mannose + [3-O-methyl-α-D-mannosyl-(1→4)]n-3-O-methyl-α-D-mannose = α-D-mannosyl-(1→4)-[3-O-methyl-α-D-mannosyl-(1→4)]n-3-O-methyl-α-D-mannose + GDP
Glossary: MMP = α-D-mannosyl-(1→4)-[3-O-methyl-α-D-mannosyl-(1→4)]n-1-O,3-O-dimethyl-α-D-mannose
Other name(s): manT (gene name)
Systematic name: GDP-α-D-mannose:[3-O-methyl-α-D-mannosyl-(1→4)]n-3-O-methyl-α-D-mannose [(1→4)-α-D-mannosyl]transferase
Comments: The enzyme, present in mycobacterial species that produce a 3-O-methylmannose polysaccharide (MMP), is involved in recycling and biosynthesis of the polymer. The enzyme has the highest activity with 3-O-methylated mannosides with 4-6 residues. The residue at the reducing end of the substrate is often dimethylated, with the second methyl group attached at the O-1 position.
