Accepted name: phosphatidyl-myo-inositol dimannoside synthase
Reaction: (1) GDP-α-D-mannose + 2-O-α-D-mannosyl-1-phosphatidyl-1D-myo-inositol = GDP + 2,6-di-O-α-D-mannosyl-1-phosphatidyl-1D-myo-inositol
(2) GDP-α-D-mannose + 2-O-(6-O-acyl-α-D-mannosyl)-1-phosphatidyl-1D-myo-inositol = GDP + 2-O-(6-O-acyl-α-D-mannosyl)-6-O-α-D-mannosyl-1-phosphatidyl-1D-myo-inositol
Glossary: 1-phosphatidyl-1D-myo-inositol = PtdIns
Other name(s): mannosyltransferase PimB; PimB; guanosine diphosphomannose-phosphatidyl-inositol α-mannosyltransferase (ambiguous)
Systematic name: GDP-α-D-mannose:2-O-α-D-mannosyl-1-phosphatidyl-1D-myo-inositol 6-α-D-mannosyltransferase (configuration-retaining)
Comments: Requires Mg2+. The enzyme, found in Corynebacteriales, is involved in the biosynthesis of phosphatidyl-myo-inositol mannosides (PIMs).
