Previous GeneCards Identifiers for GMPPA Gene
This gene is thought to encode a GDP-mannose pyrophosphorylase. This enzyme catalyzes the reaction which converts mannose-1-phosphate and GTP to GDP-mannose which is involved in the production of N-linked oligosaccharides. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for GMPPA Gene
GMPPA (GDP-Mannose Pyrophosphorylase A) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GMPPA include Alacrima, Achalasia, And Mental Retardation Syndrome and Achalasia-Addisonianism-Alacrima Syndrome. Among its related pathways are Fructose and mannose metabolism and Metabolism of proteins. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include nucleotidyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is GMPPB.
