Comments [?]

FUNCTIONCatalyzes the first step in the D-alanylation of lipoteichoic acid (LTA), the activation of D-alanine and its transfer onto the D- alanyl carrier protein (Dcp) DltC. In an ATP-dependent two-step reaction, forms a high energy D-alanyl-AMP intermediate, followed by transfer of the D-alanyl residue as a thiol ester to the phosphopantheinyl prosthetic group of the Dcp. D-alanylation of LTA plays an important role in modulating the properties of the cell wall in Gram-positive bacteria, influencing the net charge of the cell wall.
CATALYTIC ACTIVITY Reaction=ATP + D-alanine + holo-[D-alanyl-carrier protein] = AMP + D- alanyl-[D-alanyl-carrier protein] + diphosphate; Xref=Rhea:RHEA:55132, Rhea:RHEA-COMP:14102, Rhea:RHEA-COMP:14103, ChEBI:CHEBI:30616, ChEBI:CHEBI:33019, ChEBI:CHEBI:57416, ChEBI:CHEBI:64479, ChEBI:CHEBI:138620, ChEBI:CHEBI:456215; EC=;
PATHWAYCell wall biogenesis; lipoteichoic acid biosynthesis.
SIMILARITYBelongs to the ATP-dependent AMP-binding enzyme family. DltA subfamily.
