Conserved Site

Mannitol dehydrogenase, conserved site (IPR023027)

Short name: Mannitol_DH_CS


Mannitol dehydrogenases catalyse the NAD-dependent reduction of mannitol-1-phosphates as part of the phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent phosphotransferase system (PTS). The PTS facilitates the vectorial translocation of metabolisable carbohydrates to form the corresponding sugar phosphates, which are then converted to glycolytic intermediates [PMID: 1322373]. Mannitol 2-dehydrogenase catalyses the NAD-dependent reduction of mannitol to fructose [PMID: 8254318]. Several dehydrogenases have been shown [PMID: 8254318] to be evolutionary related, including mannitol-1-phosphate 5-dehydrogenase (EC: (gene mtlD), mannitol 2-dehydrogenase (EC: (gene mtlK); mannonate oxidoreductase (EC: (fructuronate reductase) (gene uxuB); Escherichia coli hypothetical proteins ydfI and yeiQ; and yeast hypothetical protein YEL070w.

This entry represents a conserved site found in mannitol dehydrogenases.
