GDP-mannose pyrophosphorylase A

GDP-mannose pyrophosphorylase
This gene is thought to encode a GDP-mannose pyrophosphorylase. This enzyme catalyzes the reaction which converts mannose-1-phosphate and GTP to GDP-mannose which is involved in the production of N-linked oligosaccharides. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

These genes encoded the GDP-mannose pyrophosphorylase (GMP), GDP-mannose-3',5'-epimerase (GME), GDP-L-galactose phosphorylase (GGP), L-galactose-1-phosphate phosphatase (GPP), L-galactose dehydrogenase (GDH), and L-galactono-1,4-lactone dehydrogenase (GalLDH).
ISPD mutations account for a small proportion of Italian Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy cases.
Comi et al., Milano, Italy. In Bmc Neurol, 2014
BACKGROUND: Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy (LGMD), caused by defective α-dystroglycan (α-DG) glycosylation, was recently associated with mutations in Isoprenoid synthase domain-containing (ISPD) and GDP-mannose pyrophosphorylase B (GMPPB) genes.
Differential transcriptional regulation of L-ascorbic acid content in peel and pulp of citrus fruits during development and maturation.
Zacarías et al., Paterna, Spain. In Planta, 2014
Differences in AsA content between varieties were associated with differential gene expression of GDP-mannose pyrophosphorylase (GMP), GDP-L-galactose phosphorylase (GGP) and L-galactose-1-phosphate phosphatase (GPP), myo-inositol oxygenase in peel, and GGP and GPP in pulp.
Mutations in GMPPA cause a glycosylation disorder characterized by intellectual disability and autonomic dysfunction.
Hübner et al., Dresden, Germany. In Am J Hum Genet, 2013
Surprisingly, GDP-mannose pyrophosphorylase activity was unchanged and GDP-mannose levels were strongly increased in lymphoblasts of individuals with GMPPA mutations.
Mutations in GDP-mannose pyrophosphorylase B cause congenital and limb-girdle muscular dystrophies associated with hypoglycosylation of α-dystroglycan.
Muntoni et al., Sanger, United States. In Am J Hum Genet, 2013
Congenital muscular dystrophies with hypoglycosylation of α-dystroglycan (α-DG) are a heterogeneous group of disorders often associated with brain and eye defects in addition to muscular dystrophy.
Regulation of ascorbic acid synthesis in plants.
Huang et al., Beijing, China. In Plant Signal Behav, 2013
GDP-mannose pyrophosphorylase (VTC1) is the initial AsA biosynthetic enzyme in L-galactose pathway, we previously showed that Arabidopsis ERF98 transcriptionally activates gene expression of VTC1 to improve AsA content and respond salt stress; recent discovery of the interaction between photomorphogenic factor COP9 signalosome (CSN) subunit CSN5B and VTC1 indicates that CSN5B promotes VTC1 degradation in the dark, which keeps the change of AsA content from day to night.
Investigation of ascorbate metabolism during inducement of storage disorders in pear.
Johnston et al., Lleida, Spain. In Physiol Plant, 2013
Quantitative polymerase chain reaction indicated that all cultivars responded to CA storage by increasing transcripts for APXs, and surprisingly the pre-l-galactose pathway gene GDP-mannose pyrophosphorylase, of which the product GDP mannose, is utilized either for cell wall polysaccharides, protein N-glycosylation or ascorbate production.
