ENZYME entry: EC 5.1.3.37

Accepted Name
mannuronan 5-epimerase.
Alternative Name(s)
alginate epimerase.
C(5)-mannuronan epimerase.
mannuronan C-5-epimerase.
Reaction catalysed
[(1->4)-beta-D-mannuronosyl](n) <=> [alginate](n)
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme epimerizes the C-5 bond in some beta-D-mannuronate residues in mannuronan, converting them to alpha-L-guluronate residues, and thus modifying the mannuronan into alginate.
  • It is found in brown algae and alginate-producing bacterial species from the Pseudomonas and Azotobacter genera.
