ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Mannuronan synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
Alginate synthase.
Mannuronosyl transferase.
Reaction catalysed
GDP-alpha-D-mannuronate + ((1->4)-beta-D-mannuronosyl)(n) <=> GDP + ((1->4)-beta-D-mannuronosyl)(n+1)
  • The enzyme catalyzes the polymerization of beta-D-mannuronate residues into a mannuronan polymer, an intermediate in the biosynthesis of alginate.
  • It is found in brown algae and in alginate-producing bacterial species from the Pseudomonas and Azotobacter genera.
