Comments [?]

case <OC:Gammaproteobacteria>
Function Involved in the assembly of lipopolysaccharide (LPS). Required for the translocation of LPS from the inner membrane to the outer membrane. May form a bridge between the inner membrane and the outer membrane, via interactions with LptC and LptD, thereby facilitating LPS transfer across the periplasm.
else
Function Involved in the assembly of lipopolysaccharide (LPS). Required for the translocation of LPS from the inner membrane to the outer membrane.
end case
Subunit Component of the lipopolysaccharide transport and assembly complex.
Subcellular location Periplasm.
Similarity Belongs to the LptA family.
