Accepted name: phosphatidylglycerol—prolipoprotein diacylglyceryl transferase
Reaction: L-1-phosphatidyl-sn-glycerol + a [prolipoprotein]-L-cysteine = sn-glycerol 1-phosphate + an [prolipoprotein]-S-1,2-diacyl-sn-glyceryl-L-cysteine
Other name(s): lgt (gene name)
Systematic name: L-1-phosphatidyl-sn-glycerol:[prolipoprotein]-L-cysteine diacyl-sn-glyceryltransferase
Comments: This bacterial enzyme, which is associated with the membrane, catalyses the transfer of an sn-1,2-diacylglyceryl group from phosphatidylglycerol to the sulfhydryl group of the prospective N-terminal cysteine of a prolipoprotein, the first step in the formation of mature triacylated lipoproteins.
