mannosephosphate isomerase

man·nose·phos·phate i·som·er·ase

(man'ōs-fos'fāt ī-som'ĕr-ās), [MIM*154550]
An enzyme that catalyzes the reversible conversion of d-mannose 6-phosphate to d-fructose 6-phosphate; a key step in the synthesis of mannose derivatives, as well as the entry of mannose into the central pathways of carbohydrate metabolism.

Seventeen enzyme loci were scored: Aco-2 (encoding aconitase), Ark1, Ark-2 (arginine kinase), Dia-2 (NADH diaphorase), Eno (enolase), Gapd (glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase), Got1, Got-2 (glutamate-oxaloacetate transaminase), Gpi (glucosephosphate isomerase), Gpt (glutamate-pyruvate transaminase), Idh-1, Idh-2 (isocitrate dehydrogenase), Mdh-2 (malate dehydrogenase), Mpi (mannosephosphate isomerase), Pep-2 (dipeptidase), Pgm (phosphoglucomutase) and Tpi (triosephosphate isomerase).
The proteins examined were transferrin, aminopeptidase (cytosol), and albumin all from blood plasma; malate dehydrogenase-2, isocitrate dehydrogenase-1, -2, fumarate hydratase, aspartate aminotransferase-1, phosphoglucomutase-1, -2, -3, lactate dehydrogenase, and mannosephosphate isomerase all from kidney.
