(3R)-3-hydroxyarachidonoyl-[acyl-carrier protein] + UDP-3-O-((3R)-3-hydroxymyristoyl)-alpha-D-glucosamine
the external layer of the Gram-negative bacterial outer membrane is primarily composed of a protective, selectively permeable lipopolysaccharide. The biosynthesis of lipopolysaccharide relies on UDP-3-O-acyl-glucosamine N-acyltransferase (LpxD), which transfers 3-hydroxy-arachidonic acid from acyl carrier protein to the 2' amine of UDP-3-O-myristoyl glucosamine. CtLpxD is expected to utilize R-3-hydroxyarachidonoyl-[acyl-carrier protein] and UDP-3-O-(myristoyl)-R-D-glucosamine, based on the predominant molecular species of Chlamydia trachomatis lipid A. This proposal is not validated by in vitro assays
(3R)-3-hydroxymyristoyl-[acyl-carrier protein] + UDP-3-O-((3R)-3-hydroxymyristoyl)-alpha-D-glucosamine
a comparison of the lipid A structures shows that in Escherichia coli and Neisseria meningitidis, LpxD can be expected to have the same specificity, both adding 3-hydroxymyristoyl chains
(3R)-3-hydroxymyristoyl-[acyl-carrier protein] + UDP-3-O-((3R)-3-hydroxymyristoyl)-alpha-D-glucosamine
since only (R)-3-hydroxymyristate is found at the 2,3,2’, and 3’ positions of Escherichia coli lipid A, it is reassuring that both Escherichia coli acyltransferases display extraordinary specificity for (R)-3-hydroxymyristoyl-[acyl-carrier protein]
