Reaction catalysed
Alpha-Kdo-(2->8)-alpha-Kdo-(2->4)-alpha-Kdo-(2->6)-lipid IV(A) + CMP-beta-Kdo <=> alpha-Kdo-(2->8)-(alpha-Kdo-(2->4))-alpha-Kdo-(2->4)-alpha-Kdo-(2->6)-lipid IV(A) + CMP
The enzyme from Chlamydia psittaci transfers four KDO residues to lipid A, forming a branched tetrasaccharide with the structure alpha- KDO-(2,8)-(alpha-KDO-(2,4))-alpha-KDO-(2,4)-alpha-KDO (cf. EC, EC and EC
