Accepted name: 4-O-β-D-mannosyl-D-glucose phosphorylase
Reaction: 4-O-β-D-mannopyranosyl-D-glucopyranose + phosphate = D-glucose + α-D-mannose 1-phosphate
Glossary: 4-O-β-D-mannopyranosyl-D-glucopyranose = β-D-mannopyranosyl-(1→4)-D-glucopyranose
Other name(s): mannosylglucose phosphorylase
Systematic name: 4-O-β-D-mannopyranosyl-D-glucopyranose:phosphate α-D-mannosyltransferase
Comments: This enzyme forms part of a mannan catabolic pathway in the anaerobic bacterium Bacteroides fragilis NCTC 9343.
