Tetraacyldisaccharide 4'-kinase (IPR003758)

Short name: Tetraacyldisaccharide_4-kinase

Family relationships

None.

Description

Tetraacyldisaccharide 4'-kinase phosphorylates the 4'-position of a tetraacyldisaccharide 1-phosphate precursor (DS-1-P) of lipid A, but the enzyme has not yet been purified because of instability [PMID: 9575203]. This enzyme is involved in the synthesis of lipid A portion of the bacterial lipopolysaccharide layer (LPS).
