3-deoxy-D-manno-octulosonic-acid transferase, N-terminal (IPR007507)

Short name: Glycos_transf_N

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



This is a domain found in proteins that transfer activated sugars to a variety of substrates, including glycogen, fructose-6-phosphate and lipopolysaccharides. Proteins bearing this domain transfer UDP, ADP, GDP or CMP linked sugars. This region is flanked at the N terminus by a signal peptide and at the C terminus by a glycosyl transferase group 1 domain (IPR001296). The eukaryotic glycogen synthases may be distant members of this bacterial family [PMID: 10952982].
