- Fucose-1-phosphate guanylyltransferase
enzymology, a fucose-1-phosphate guanylyltransferase (EC number|126.96.36.199) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:GTP + beta-L-fucose 1-phosphate diphosphate + GDP-L-fucose
Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are GTP and
beta-L-fucose 1-phosphate, whereas its two products are diphosphateand GDP-L-fucose.
This enzyme belongs to the family of
transferases, specifically those transferring phosphorus-containing nucleotidegroups ( nucleotidyltransferases). The systematic name of this enzyme class is GTP:beta-L-fucose-1-phosphate guanylyltransferase. Other names in common use include GDP fucose pyrophosphorylase, guanosine diphosphate L-fucose pyrophosphorylase, GDP-L-fucose pyrophosphorylase, GDP-fucose pyrophosphorylase, and GTP:L-fucose-1-phosphate guanylyltransferase. This enzyme participates in fructose and mannose metabolism.
CAS registry numberfor this enzyme class is CAS registry|9033-14-1."
