- Dolichyl-phosphate-mannose-glycolipid alpha-mannosyltransferase
enzymology, a dolichyl-phosphate-mannose-glycolipid alpha-mannosyltransferase (EC number|188.8.131.52) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reactionin which an alpha-D-mannosyl residue is transferred from a dolichyl-phosphate D-mannose molecule into a membrane lipid-linked oligosaccharide.
This enzyme belongs to the family of
glycosyltransferases, specifically the hexosyltransferases. The systematic name of this enzyme class is dolichyl-phosphate-D-mannose:glycolipid alpha-D-mannosyltransferase. Other names in common use include dolichol phosphomannose-oligosaccharide-lipid mannosyltransferase, and oligomannosylsynthase. This enzyme participates in n-glycan biosynthesisand glycan structures - biosynthesis 1.
CAS registry numberfor this enzyme class is CAS registry|77967-76-1."
