Comments [?]

Function Cell wall formation. Catalyzes the transfer of a GlcNAc subunit on undecaprenyl-pyrophosphoryl-MurNAc-pentapeptide (lipid intermediate I) to form undecaprenyl-pyrophosphoryl-MurNAc-(pentapeptide)GlcNAc (lipid intermediate II).
Catalytic activity RHEA:23192: Mur2Ac(oyl-L-Ala-gamma-D-Glu-L-Lys-D-Ala-D-Ala)-di-trans,octa-cis-undecaprenyl diphosphate + UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine = beta-D-GlcNAc-(1->4)-Mur2Ac(oyl-L-Ala-gamma-D-Glu-L-Lys-D-Ala-D-Ala)-di-trans,octa-cis-undecaprenyl diphosphate + H(+) + UDP
