MPI


mannose phosphate isomerase


ENTREZID: 4351 | Type: Protein Coding | Map: 15q24.1-q24.2

OMIM: 615274 | 154050


Summary Entrez
Phosphomannose isomerase catalyzes the interconversion of fructose-6-phosphate and mannose-6-phosphate and plays a critical role in maintaining the supply of D-mannose derivatives, which are required for most glycosylation reactions. Mutations in the MPI gene were found in patients with carbohydrate-deficient glycoprotein syndrome, type Ib. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
