IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: dolichyl-phosphate-mannose—protein mannosyltransferase

Reaction: (1) dolichyl β-D-mannosyl phosphate + L-threonyl-[protein] = dolichyl phosphate + 3-O-(α-D-mannosyl)-L-threonyl-[protein]
(2) dolichyl β-D-mannosyl phosphate + L-seryl-[protein] = dolichyl phosphate + 3-O-(α-D-mannosyl)-L-seryl-[protein]

Other name(s): dolichol phosphomannose-protein mannosyltransferase; protein O-D-mannosyltransferase; dolichyl-phosphate-D-mannose:protein O-D-mannosyltransferase; dolichyl-phosphate-mannose-protein mannosyltransferase

Systematic name: dolichyl-D-mannosyl-phosphate:protein O-D-mannosyltransferase

Comments: The enzyme transfers mannosyl residues to the hydroxy group of serine or threonine residues, producing cell-wall mannoproteins. It acts only on long-chain α-dihydropolyprenyl derivatives, larger than C35.
