IUBMB Comments
The enzyme epimerizes the C-5 bond in some beta-D-mannuronate residues in mannuronan, converting them to alpha-L-guluronate residues, and thus modifying the mannuronan into alginate. It is found in brown algae and alginate-producing bacterial species from the Pseudomonas and Azotobacter genera.
