ENZYME entry: EC 2.4.1.70

Accepted Name
Poly(ribitol-phosphate) alpha-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
Poly(ribitol-phosphate) N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase.
UDP acetylglucosamine-poly(ribitol phosphate) acetylglucosaminyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
n UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine + 4-O-(D-ribitylphospho)(n)-di((2R)-1-glycerophospho)-N-acetyl-beta-D-mannosaminyl-(1->4)-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosaminyl-diphospho-ditrans,octacis-undecaprenol <=> n UDP + 4-O-(2-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosaminyl-D-ribitylphospho)(n)-di((2R)-1-glycerophospho)-N-acetyl-beta-D-mannosaminyl-(1->4)-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosaminyl-diphospho-ditrans,octacis-undecaprenol
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-alpha-D-glucosamine to the hydroxyl group at the 2 position of the ribitol phosphate units.
  • Cf. EC 2.4.1.355.
