Other name(s): GlfT2
Systematic name: UDP-α-D-galactofuranose:β-D-galactofuranosyl-(1→5)-β-D-galactofuranosyl-(1→4)-α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1→3)-N-acetyl-α-D-glucosaminyl-diphospho-trans,octacis-decaprenol 4-β/5-β-D-galactofuranosyltransferase
Comments: Isolated from Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The enzyme adds approximately twenty-eight galactofuranosyl residues with alternating 1→5 and 1→6 links forming a galactan domain with approximately thirty galactofuranosyl residues. Involved in the formation of the cell wall in mycobacteria.
