The UDP-N-acetylglucosamine (UDP-GlcNAc) is present as one of the glycosyl donors for disaccharide linker (d-N-GlcNAc-l-rhamnose) and the precursor of peptidoglycan in mycobacteria. The bifunctional enzyme GlmU involves in the last two sequential steps of UDP-GlcNAc synthetic pathway. Glucosamine-1-phosphate acetyltransferase catalyzes the formation of N-acetylglucosamine-1-phosphate (GlcNAc-1-P) from glucosamine-1-phosphate (GlcN-1-P) and acetyl coenzyme A (Acetyl CoA), and N-acetylglucosamine… CONTINUE READING
