Comments [?]

Function Involved in the modification of the lipid A domain of lipopolysaccharides (LPS). Transfers a phosphate group from undecaprenyl pyrophosphate (C55-PP) to lipid A to form lipid A 1-diphosphate. Contributes to the recycling of undecaprenyl phosphate (C55-P).
case <OC:Escherichia>
Catalytic activity RHEA:45468: alpha-Kdo-(2->4)-alpha-Kdo-(2->6)-lipid A (E. coli) + di-trans,octa-cis-undecaprenyl diphosphate = (Kdo)2-lipid A 1-diphosphate + di-trans,octa-cis-undecaprenyl phosphate
Catalytic activity RHEA:74291: an alpha-Kdo-(2->4)-alpha-Kdo-(2->6)-lipid A + di-trans,octa-cis-undecaprenyl diphosphate = an alpha-D-Kdo-(2->4)-alpha-D-Kdo-(2->6)-lipid A 1-diphosphate + di-trans,octa-cis-undecaprenyl phosphate
end case
Pathway Bacterial outer membrane biogenesis; lipopolysaccharide biosynthesis.
Subcellular location Cell inner membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Note=Transferase activity takes place on the periplamic side of the inner membrane.
Similarity Belongs to the LpxT phosphotransferase family.
