Other name(s): arabinogalactan galactofuranosyl transferase 1; GlfT1
Systematic name: UDP-α-D-galactofuranose:α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1→3)-N-acetyl-α-D-glucosaminyl-diphospho-trans,octacis-decaprenol 3-β/4-β-galactofuranosyltransferase
Comments: Isolated from Mycobacterium tuberculosis and M. smegmatis, the enzyme has dual β-(1→4) and β-(1→5) transferase action. Involved in the formation of the cell wall in mycobacteria.
