  Domain Name: Glyco_transf_25
Glycosyltransferase family 25 [lipooligosaccharide (LOS) biosynthesis protein] is a family of glycosyltransferases involved in LOS biosynthesis. The members include the beta(1,4) galactosyltransferases: Lgt2 of Moraxella catarrhalis, LgtB and LgtE of Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Lic2A of Haemophilus influenzae. M. catarrhalis Lgt2 catalyzes the addition of galactose (Gal) to the growing chain of LOS on the cell surface. N. gonorrhoeae LgtB and LgtE link Gal-beta(1,4) to GlcNAc (N-acetylglucosamine) and Glc (glucose), respectively. The genes encoding LgtB and LgtE are two genes of a five gene locus involved in the synthesis of gonococcal LOS. LgtE is believed to perform the first step in LOS biosynthesis.
