Accepted name: β-1,2-mannooligosaccharide synthase
Reaction: GDP-α-D-mannose + [(1→2)-β-D-mannosyl]n = GDP + [(1→2)-β-D-mannosyl]n+1
Other name(s): MTP1 (gene name); MTP2 (gene name)
Systematic name: GDP-α-D-mannose:(1→2)-β-D-mannan mannosyltransferase (configuration-inverting)
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from Leishmania parasites, is involved in synthesis of mannogen, a β-(1→2)-mannan oligosaccharide used by the organisms as a carbohydrate reserve.
