External Ids for MPI Gene
Phosphomannose isomerase catalyzes the interconversion of fructose-6-phosphate and mannose-6-phosphate and plays a critical role in maintaining the supply of D-mannose derivatives, which are required for most glycosylation reactions. Mutations in the MPI gene were found in patients with carbohydrate-deficient glycoprotein syndrome, type Ib. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

GeneCards Summary for MPI Gene
MPI (Mannose Phosphate Isomerase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MPI include congenital disorder of glycosylation, type ib and protein-losing enteropathy. Among its related pathways are Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein and Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein. GO annotations related to this gene include mannose-6-phosphate isomerase activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MPI Gene
Involved in the synthesis of the GDP-mannose and dolichol-phosphate-mannose required for a number of critical mannosyl transfer reactions
