Phosphorylation of the lipid A region of meningococcal lipopolysaccharide: identification of a family of transferases that add phosphoethanolamine to lipopolysaccharide.

Abstract:

A gene, NMB1638, with homology to the recently characterized gene encoding a phosphoethanolamine transferase, lpt-3, has been identified from the Neisseria meningitidis genome sequence and was found to be present in all meningococcal strains examined. Homology comparison with other database sequences would suggest that NMB1638 and lpt-3 represent genes coding for members of a family of proteins of related function identified in a wide range of gram-negative species of bacteria. When grown and...
