Accepted name: GDP-mannose:di-myo-inositol-1,3'-phosphate β-1,2-mannosyltransferase

Reaction: 2 GDP-α-D-mannose + bis(myo-inositol) 1,3'-phosphate = 2 GDP + 2-O-(β-D-mannosyl-(1→2)-β-D-mannosyl)-bis(myo-inositol) 1,3'-phosphate (overall reaction)
(1a) GDP-α-D-mannose + bis(myo-inositol) 1,3'-phosphate = GDP + 2-O-(β-D-mannosyl)-bis(myo-inositol) 1,3'-phosphate
(1b) GDP-α-D-mannose + 2-O-(β-D-mannosyl)-bis(myo-inositol) 1,3'-phosphate = GDP + 2-O-(β-D-mannosyl-(1→2)-β-D-mannosyl)-bis(myo-inositol) 1,3'-phosphate

Other name(s): MDIP synthase

Systematic name: GDP-α-D-mannose:bis(myo-inositol)-1,3'-phosphate 2-β-D-mannosyltransferase

Comments: The enzyme from the hyperthermophilic bacterium Thermotoga maritima is involved in the synthesis of the solutes 2-O-(β-D-mannosyl)-bis(myo-inositol) 1,3'-phosphate and 2-O-(β-D-mannosyl-(1→2)-β-D-mannosyl)-bis(myo-inositol) 1,3'-phosphate.
