Accepted name: GDP-mannose:cellobiosyl-diphosphopolyprenol α-mannosyltransferase
Reaction: GDP-mannose + D-Glc-β-(1→4)-Glc-α-1-diphospho-ditrans,octacis-undecaprenol = GDP + D-Man-α-(1→3)-D-Glc-β-(1→4)-D-Glc-α-1-diphospho-ditrans,octacis-undecaprenol

Other name(s): GumH; AceA; α1,3-mannosyltransferase AceA
Systematic name: GDP-mannose:D-Glc-β-(1→4)-Glc-α-1-diphospho-ditrans,octacis-undecaprenol 3-α-mannosyltransferase
Comments: In the bacterium Gluconacetobacter xylinus (previously known as Acetobacter xylinum) the enzyme is involved in the biosynthesis of the exopolysaccharide acetan [1]. In Xanthomonas campestris the enzyme is involved in the biosynthesis of the exopolysaccharide xanthan [5].
