Disease relevance of glycosyltransferase


High impact information on glycosyltransferase


Biological context of glycosyltransferase

  • Mutations in the genes for each of the three Streptococcus pneumoniae class A PBPs, PBP1a, PBP1b, and PBP2a, were isolated by insertion duplication mutagenesis within the glycosyltransferase domain, documenting that their function is not essential for cellular growth in the laboratory [9].
