ENZYME entry: EC 2.4.1.355

Accepted Name
poly(ribitol-phosphate) beta-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
4-O-[(D-ribitylphospho)(n)-di{(2R)-glycerylphospho}]-N-acetyl-beta-D-mannosaminyl-(1->4)-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosaminyl di-trans,octa-cis-undecaprenyl diphosphate + n UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine <=> 4-O-([2-N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminyl-1-D-ribitylphospho](n)-di{[2R]-1-glycerylphospho})-N-acetyl-beta-D-mannosaminyl-(1->4)-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosaminyl di-trans,octa-cis-undecaprenyl diphosphate + n H(+) + n UDP
Comment(s)
  • Involved in the biosynthesis of poly(ribitol-phosphate) teichoic acids in the cell wall of the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus.
  • This enzyme adds an N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosamine to the OH group at the 2 position of the ribitol phosphate units.
  • Cf. EC 2.4.1.70.
