Comments [?]

case <OC:Bacteria>
Function Catalyzes the hydrolysis of UDP-3-O-myristoyl-N-acetylglucosamine to form UDP-3-O-myristoylglucosamine and acetate, the committed step in lipid A biosynthesis.
end case
case <OG:Chloroplast>
Function Catalyzes the hydrolysis of UDP-3-O-myristoyl-N-acetylglucosamine to form UDP-3-O-myristoylglucosamine and acetate. 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.
end case
Catalytic activity RHEA:25209: H2O + UDP-3-O-[(3R)-3-hydroxytetradecanoyl]-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine = acetate + UDP-3-O-[(3R)-3-hydroxytetradecanoyl]-alpha-D-glucosamine
EC 3.5.1.108
Cofactor Zn(2+)
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 2/6.
case <OG:Chloroplast>
Subcellular location Plastid, chloroplast.
end case
Similarity Belongs to the LpxC family.
