IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: mannosyl-3-phosphoglycerate phosphatase

Reaction: 2-O-(α-D-mannosyl)-3-phosphoglycerate + H2O = 2-O-(α-D-mannosyl)-D-glycerate + phosphate

Systematic name: 2-O-(α-D-mannosyl)-3-phosphoglycerate phosphohydrolase

Comments: Requires Mg2+. The enzyme from Pyrococcus horikoshii is specific for α-D-mannosyl-3-phosphoglycerate and forms part of the pathway for the synthesis of mannosylglycerate.
