MetaCyc Compound Class: a dolichyl phosphate

Synonyms: a a dolichol-phosphate, a dolychol phosphate, a dolichyl phosphate, a dolichol phosphate, a dolichyl monophosphate, a dolichol monophosphate

Summary:
Dolichol is the name given to a family of long-chain polyprenols that contain a varying number of cis-linked isoprene units, terminating with three trans-linked isoprene units. The first (alpha) unit in dolichols is always saturated [Sato01]. Additional modifications are found. For example, dolichols from certain halobacteria contain an additional saturation in the terminal (omega) isoprene unit.

The length of dolichol molecules varies within a range in a species, and the range varies among species (reviewed in [Burda99]). In mammals dolichols are usually within the range of 80 to 105 carbons. Archaebacteria prefer dolichols of 55-60 carbons.

Dolichyl phosphate acts as a membrane-bound carrier in the assembly of pyrophosphate-linked oligosaccharides. It can accept the respective sugar residues from the donors UDP-N-acetyl-α-D-glucosamine, UDP-α-D-glucose and GDP-α-D-mannose.

The structure shown here is of a C80 dolichol phosphate, containing 16 isoprene units.
