ENZYME entry: EC 2.7.8.45

Accepted Name
Teichoic acid glycerol-phosphate transferase.
Alternative Name(s)
Teichoic acid glycerol-phosphate primase.
Reaction catalysed
CDP-glycerol + 4-O-((2R)-1-glycerophospho)-N-acetyl-beta-D-mannosaminyl-(1->4)-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosaminyl-diphospho-ditrans,octacis-undecaprenol <=> CDP + 4-O-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 teichoic acid linkage units in the cell walls of some bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus.
  • This enzyme adds a second glycerol unit to the disaccharide linker of the teichoic acid.
  • Cf. EC 2.7.8.12.
