The enzyme catalyses the formation of the stable intermediate GDP-beta-L-gulose as well as GDP-beta-L-galactose. The reaction proceeds by C4' oxidation of GDP-alpha-D-mannose followed by epimerization of the C5' position to give GDP-beta-L-4-dehydro-gulose. This intermediate is either reduced to give GDP-beta-L-gulose or the C3' position is epimerized to give GDP-beta-L-4-dehydro-galactose, followed by C4' reduction to yield GDP-beta-L-galactose. Both products serve as intermediates in two different variants of plant L-ascorbate biosynthesis pathways.
