EC 2.4.1.182     
Accepted name: lipid-A-disaccharide synthase
Reaction: UDP-2,3-bis(3-hydroxytetradecanoyl)glucosamine + 2,3-bis(3-hydroxytetradecanoyl)-β-D-glucosaminyl 1-phosphate = UDP + 2,3-bis(3-hydroxytetradecanoyl)-D-glucosaminyl-(1→6)-β-D-2,3-bis(3-hydroxytetradecanoyl)-β-D-glucosaminyl 1-phosphate
Systematic name: UDP-2,3-bis(3-hydroxytetradecanoyl)glucosamine:2,3-bis-(3-hydroxytetradecanoyl)-β-D-glucosaminyl-1-phosphate 2,3-bis(3-hydroxytetradecanoyl)-glucosaminyltransferase
Comments: Involved with EC 2.3.1.129 (acyl-[acyl-carrier-protein]—UDP-N-acetylglucosamine O-acyltransferase) and EC 2.7.1.130 (tetraacyldisaccharide 4′-kinase) in the biosynthesis of the phosphorylated glycolipid, Lipid A, in the outer membrane of Escherichia coli.
