Comments [?]

Function Involved in the assembly of lipopolysaccharide (LPS). Required for the translocation of LPS from the inner membrane to the outer membrane. Facilitates the transfer of LPS from the inner membrane to the periplasmic protein LptA. Could be a docking site for LptA.
Subunit Component of the lipopolysaccharide transport and assembly complex. Interacts with LptA and the LptBFG transporter complex.
Subcellular location Cell inner membrane; Single-pass membrane protein.
Similarity Belongs to the LptC family.
