NameGDP-4-keto-6-deoxymannose biosynthesis from b-D-fructose-6-phosphate
DescriptionThe sugar intermediate GDP-4-keto-6-deoxymannose is produced in a 4-step pathway from beta-D-fructose-6-phosphate using the ManABC and Gmd gene products. Mannose may be produced as a side-product of this pathway by the inclusion of the Gmm gene product (GDP-mannose mannosyl hydrolase). GDP-4-keto-6-deoxymannose may be converted to GDP-L-fucose by the Fcl gene product, to perosamine by Per, or to colicin by ColCD.
