|Comment||This family consists of examples of mannosyl-3-phosphoglycerate synthase (MPGS), which together mannosyl-3-phosphoglycerate phosphatase (MPGP) comprises a two-step pathway for mannosylglycerate biosynthesis. Mannosylglycerate is a compatible solute that tends to be restricted to extreme thermophiles of archaea and bacteria. Note that in Rhodothermus marinus, this pathway is one of two; the other is condensation of GDP-mannose with D-glycerate by mannosylglycerate synthase.|
RT The bacterium Thermus thermophilus, like hyperthermophilic archaea, uses a two-step pathway for the synthesis of mannosylglycerate.
