Glossary: a lipid A disaccharide = a dephospho-lipid IVA = 2-deoxy-2-{[(3R)-3-hydroxyacyl]amino}-3-O-[(3R)-3-hydroxyacyl]-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→6)-2-deoxy-3-O-[(3R)-3-hydroxyacyl]-2-{[(3R)-3-hydroxyacyl]amino}-1-O-phospho-α-D-glucopyranose
a lipid IVA = 2-deoxy-2-{[(3R)-3-hydroxyacyl]amino}-3-O-[(3R)-3-hydroxyacyl]-4-O-phospho-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→6)-2-deoxy-3-O-[(3R)-3-hydroxyacyl]-2-{[(3R)-3-hydroxyacyl]amino}-1-O-phospho-α-D-glucopyranose
Other name(s): lpxK (gene name); lipid-A 4′-kinase; ATP:2,2′,3,3′-tetrakis[(3R)-3-hydroxytetradecanoyl]-β-D-glucosaminyl-(1→6)-α-D-glucosaminyl-phosphate 4′-O-phosphotransferase
Systematic name: ATP:2-deoxy-2-{[(3R)-3-hydroxyacyl]amino}-3-O-[(3R)-3-hydroxyacyl]-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→6)-2-deoxy-3-O-[(3R)-3-hydroxyacyl]-2-{[(3R)-3-hydroxyacyl]amino}-1-O-phospho-α-D-glucopyranose 4′-O-phosphotransferase
Comments: Involved with EC (acyl-[acyl-carrier-protein]—UDP-N-acetylglucosamine O-acyltransferase) and EC (lipid-A-disaccharide synthase) in the biosynthesis of the phosphorylated glycolipid, lipid A, in the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria.
