Transferring groups other than aminoacyl groups
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
acetyl-CoA:polysialic-acid O-acetyltransferase
Reaction(IUBMB)
acetyl-CoA + an alpha-2,8-linked polymer of sialic acid = CoA + polysialic acid acetylated at O-7 or O-9 [RN:R04484 R07249]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
acetyl-CoA [CPD:C00024];
alpha-2,8-linked polymer of sialic acid [CPD:C04466]
Product
CoA [cpd:C00010];
polysialic acid acetylated at O-7 [CPD:C04505];
polysialic acid acetylated at O-9 [CPD:C08721]
Comment
Acts only on substrates containing more than 14 sialosyl residues. Catalyses the modification of capsular polysaccharides in some strains of Escherichia coli.
