Comments [?]

Function Catalyzes the transfer of the GlcNAc-1-phosphate moiety from UDP-GlcNAc onto the carrier lipid undecaprenyl phosphate (C55-P), yielding GlcNAc-pyrophosphoryl-undecaprenyl (GlcNAc-PP-C55).
Catalytic activity RHEA:28090: di-trans,octa-cis-undecaprenyl phosphate + UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine = N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosaminyl-di-trans,octa-cis-undecaprenyl diphosphate + UMP
Cofactor Mg(2+)
Pathway Bacterial outer membrane biogenesis; LPS O-antigen biosynthesis.
case <OC:Enterobacterales>
Pathway Bacterial outer membrane biogenesis; enterobacterial common antigen biosynthesis.
end case
Subcellular location Cell inner membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.
Similarity Belongs to the glycosyltransferase 4 family. WecA subfamily.
