ENZYME entry: EC 6.1.1.13

Accepted Name
D-alanine--poly(phosphoribitol) ligase.
Alternative Name(s)
D-alanine-activating enzyme.
D-alanine-D-alanyl carrier protein ligase.
D-alanine-membrane acceptor ligase.
D-alanine: membrane acceptor ligase.
D-alanyl-poly(phosphoribitol) synthetase.
Reaction catalysed
ATP + D-alanine + poly(ribitol phosphate) <=> AMP + diphosphate + O-D-alanyl-poly(ribitol phosphate)
Comment(s)
  • A thioester bond is formed transiently between D-alanine and the sulfhydryl group of the 4'-phosphopantetheine prosthetic group of D-alanyl carrier protein during the activation of the alanine.
  • Involved in the synthesis of teichoic acids.
