Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Reaction: 2.3.1.-

Superclasses: Reactions Classified By Conversion Type Simple Reactions Chemical Reactions
Reactions Classified By Substrate Small-Molecule Reactions

EC Number: 2.3.1.-

Enzymes and Genes:
palmitoyl transferase for Lipid A Inferred from experiment : pagP

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the direction in which it was curated.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: 2.3.1 -- Transferring groups other than amino-acyl groups

Summary:
The donor phospholipid has palmitate at the sn-1 position [Bishop00]. A PagP homodimer catalyzes palmitate transfer from a phospholipid (sn-1 position) to lipid A or to a lipid A precursor (N-linked hydroxymyristate on the proximal unit) [Bishop00].
