Names

Accepted name:
teichoic acid ribitol-phosphate primase
Other names:
Tar primase
tarK (gene name)
Systematic name:
CDP-ribitol:4-O-[(2R)-1-glycerophospho]-N-acetyl-β-D-mannosaminyl-(1→4)-N-acetyl-α-D-glucosaminyl-diphospho-ditrans,octacis-undecaprenol ribitylphosphotransferase

Reaction

Comments:

Involved in the biosynthesis of teichoic acid linkage units in the cell wall of Bacillus subtilis W23. This enzyme adds the first ribitol unit to the disaccharide linker of the teichoic acid.
