ENZYME entry: EC 2.7.8.33

Accepted Name
UDP-N-acetylglucosamine--undecaprenyl-phosphate N-acetylglucosaminephosphotransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
UDP-GlcNAc:undecaprenyl-phosphate GlcNAc-1-phosphate transferase.
Undecaprenyl-phosphate alpha-N-acetylglucosaminyl 1-phosphate transferase.
Reaction catalysed
UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine + ditrans,octacis-undecaprenyl phosphate <=> UMP + N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosaminyl-diphospho-ditrans,octacis-undecaprenol
Comment(s)
  • This enzyme catalyzes the synthesis of N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosaminyl- diphospho-ditrans,octacis-undecaprenol, an essential lipid intermediate for the biosynthesis of various bacterial cell envelope components.
  • The enzyme also initiates the biosynthesis of enterobacterial common antigen and O-antigen lipopolysaccharide in certain Escherichia coli strains, including K-12 and of teichoic acid in certain Gram-positive bacteria.
  • Formerly EC 2.7.8.n2.
