EC Number: 18.104.22.168
Enzymes and Genes:
UDP-D-galactose:(glucosyl)lipopolysaccharide-1,6-D-galactosyltransferase : waaB
In Pathway: Lipid A-core biosynthesis
Note that this reaction equation differs from the official Enzyme Commission reaction equations for this EC number.
The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.
Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3, and some reactions have been computationally balanced for hydrogen by adding free protons. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.
Mass balance status: Balanced.
