Accepted name: teichoic acid ribitol-phosphate polymerase
Reaction: n CDP-ribitol + 4-O-[1-D-ribitylphospho-(2R)-1-glycerophospho]-N-acetyl-β-D-mannosaminyl-(1→4)-N-acetyl-α-D-glucosaminyl-diphospho-ditrans,octacis-undecaprenol = n CMP + 4-O-[(1-D-ribitylphospho)n-(1-D-ribitylphospho)-(2R)-1-glycerophospho]-N-acetyl-β-D-mannosaminyl-(1→4)-N-acetyl-α-D-glucosaminyl-diphospho-ditrans,octacis-undecaprenol
Other name(s): Tar polymerase (ambiguous); tarL (gene name) (ambiguous)
Systematic name: CDP-ribitol:4-O-[1-D-ribitylphospho-(2R)-1-glycerophospho]-N-acetyl-β-D-mannosaminyl-(1→4)-N-acetyl-α-D-glucosaminyl-diphospho-ditrans,octacis-undecaprenol ribitolphosphotransferase
Comments: Involved in the biosynthesis of teichoic acid linkage units in the cell wall of Bacillus subtilis W23. This enzyme adds the 25-35 ribitol units to the linker molecule.
