Accepted Name
CDP-ribitol ribitolphosphotransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
polyribitol phosphate polymerase.
teichoate synthase.
teichoic-acid synthase.
Reaction catalysed
4-O-[di(2R)-glycerylphospho]-N-acetyl-beta-D-mannosaminyl-(1->4)-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosaminyl di-trans,octa-cis-undecaprenyl diphosphate + n CDP-L-ribitol <=> 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 CMP + n H(+)
Comment(s)
  • Involved in the biosynthesis of poly ribitol phosphate teichoic acids in the cell wall of the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus.
  • This enzyme adds around 40 ribitol units to the linker molecule.
  • Formerly EC 2.4.1.55.
