Subsystem: Teichoic and lipoteichoic acids biosynthesis
This subsystem's description is:
All-associated teichoic acids are a heterogeneous class of phosphate-rich polymers that are covalently linked to the cell wall peptidoglycan of gram-positive bacteria. They consist of a main chain of phosphodiester-linked polyols and/or sugar moieties attached to peptidoglycan via a linkage unit. Glycerol and ribitol are the most commonly occurring polyols and are often substituted with D-alanine or various sugar residues.
