Reaction: n CDP-ribitol + 4-O-di[(2R)-1-glycerophospho]-N-acetyl-β-D-mannosaminyl-(1→4)-N-acetyl-α-D-glucosaminyl-diphospho-ditrans,octacis-undecaprenol = n CMP + 4-O-(D-ribitylphospho)n-di[(2R)-1-glycerophospho]-N-acetyl-β-D-mannosaminyl-(1→4)-N-acetyl-α-D-glucosaminyl-diphospho-ditrans,octacis-undecaprenol
Other name(s): teichoic-acid synthase (ambiguous); polyribitol phosphate synthetase (ambiguous); teichoate synthetase (ambiguous); poly(ribitol phosphate) synthetase (ambiguous); polyribitol phosphate polymerase (ambiguous); teichoate synthase (ambiguous); CDP-ribitol:poly(ribitol phosphate) ribitolphosphotransferase
Systematic name: CDP-ribitol:4-O-di[(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 poly ribitol phosphate teichoic acids in the cell wall of the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus. This enzyme adds around 40 ribitol units to the linker molecule.
