Comments [?]

case not <OG:Chloroplast>
Function Involved in the biosynthesis of lipid A, a phosphorylated glycolipid that anchors the lipopolysaccharide to the outer membrane of the cell (By similarity).
end case
case <OG:Chloroplast>
Function Involved in the biosynthesis of lipid A, a phosphorylated glycolipid that in bacteria anchors the lipopolysaccharide to the outer membrane of the cell. The target for the lipopolysaccharides produced in the chloroplast could either be the cell envelope of the eukaryote or the plastid membrane (Potential).
end case
Catalytic activity (R)-3-hydroxytetradecanoyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] + UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine = [acyl-carrier-protein] + UDP-3-O-(3-hydroxytetradecanoyl)-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine.
Pathway Glycolipid biosynthesis; lipid IV(A) biosynthesis; lipid IV(A) from (3R)-3-hydroxytetradecanoyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] and UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine; step 1/6.
Subunit Homotrimer (By similarity).
case <OG:Chloroplast>
Subcellular location Plastid, chloroplast.
else
Subcellular location Cytoplasm (By similarity).
end case
Similarity Belongs to the transferase hexapeptide repeat family. LpxA subfamily.
