Summaries for GMDS Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for GMDS Gene

  • GDP-mannose 4,6-dehydratase (GMD; EC catalyzes the conversion of GDP-mannose to GDP-4-keto-6-deoxymannose, the first step in the synthesis of GDP-fucose from GDP-mannose, using NADP+ as a cofactor. The second and third steps of the pathway are catalyzed by a single enzyme, GDP-keto-6-deoxymannose 3,5-epimerase, 4-reductase, designated FX in humans (MIM 137020).[supplied by OMIM, Aug 2009]

GeneCards Summary for GMDS Gene
