IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
mannosylglycerate hydrolase
Other name:
Systematic name:
2-O-(α-D-mannopyranosyl)-D-glycerate D-mannohydrolase



The enzyme participates in the mannosylglycerate degradation pathway of some bacteria. Mannosylglycerate is phosphorylated during transport into the cell, and the phosphorylated form is hydrolysed by this enzyme.
