Glycosyl transferase WecB/TagA/CpsF (IPR004629)

Short name: WecB_TagA_CpsF

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


The WecG member of this family, believed to be UDP-N-acetyl-D-mannosaminuronic acid transferase, plays a role in enterobacterial common antigen (eca) synthesis in Escherichia coli. Another family member, the Bacillus subtilis TagA protein, is involved in the biosynthesis of the cell wall polymer poly(glycerol phosphate). The third family member, CpsF, CMP-N-acetylneuraminic acid synthetase has a role in the capsular polysaccharide biosynthesis pathway. Also included in this group is Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris GumM, a glycosyltransferase participating in the biosynthesis of the exopolysaccharide xanthan [PMID: 8830246, PMID: 11673418, PMID: 12618464, PMID: 18156271, PMID: 16953575, PMID: 3275612, PMID: 9537354].
