InterPro : IPR006409

Name  Glycerol-3-phosphate cytidylyltransferase Short Name  G3P_cytidylTrfase
Type  Family Description  This entry represents glycerol-3-phosphate cytidyltransferase, also called CDP-glycerol pyrophosphorylase. A closely related protein assigned a different function experimentally is a human ethanolamine-phosphate cytidylyltransferase (). Glycerol-3-phosphate cytidyltransferase acts in pathways of teichoic acid biosynthesis. Teichoic acids are substituted polymers, linked by phosphodiester bonds, of glycerol, ribitol, etc. An example is poly(glycerol phosphate), the major teichoic acid of the Bacillus subtiliscell wall. Most but not all species encoding proteins in this family are Gram-positive bacteria.
