Lipopolysaccharide assembly, LptC-related (IPR010664)

Short name: LipoPS_assembly_LptC-rel

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


This family consists of several related groups of proteins, one of which is the LptC family. LptC is involved in lipopolysaccharide-assembly on the outer membrane of Gram-negative organisms [PMID: 18424520]. The lipopolysaccharide component of the outer bacterial membrane is transported form its source of origin to the outer membrane by a set of proteins constituting a transport machinery that is made up of LptA, LptB, LptC, LptD, LptE. LptC is located on the inner membrane side of the intermembrane space.
