ENZYME entry: EC 2.7.7.69

Accepted Name
GDP-L-galactose/GDP-D-glucose: hexose 1-phosphate guanylyltransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
GDP-L-galactose phosphorylase.
Reaction catalysed
  • GDP-beta-L-galactose + alpha-D-mannose 1-phosphate <=> beta-L-galactose 1-phosphate + GDP-alpha-D-mannose
  • GDP-alpha-D-glucose + alpha-D-mannose 1-phosphate <=> alpha-D-glucose 1-phosphate + GDP-alpha-D-mannose
Comment(s)
  • This plant enzyme catalyzes the conversion of GDP-beta-L-galactose and GDP-alpha-D-glucose to beta-L-galactose 1-phosphate and alpha-D- glucose 1-phosphate, respectively.
  • The enzyme can use inorganic phosphate as the cosubstrate, but several hexose 1-phosphates, including alpha-D-mannose 1-phosphate, alpha-D-glucose 1-phosphate, and alpha-D-galactose 1-phosphate, are better guanylyl acceptors.
  • The enzyme's activity on GDP-beta-L-galactose is crucial for the biosynthesis of L-ascorbate.
