Function May catalyze the final step in cell wall teichoic acid biosynthesis, the transfer of the anionic cell wall polymers (APs) from their lipid-linked precursor to the cell wall peptidoglycan (PG).
Pathway Cell wall biogenesis.
Subcellular location Cell membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein.
Similarity Belongs to the LytR/CpsA/Psr (LCP) family.
