WfgS and WfeV are involved in O-antigen biosynthesis.
Escherichia coli WfgS and Shigella dysenteriae WfeV are glycosyltransferase 2 family enzymes involved in O-antigen biosynthesis. GT-2 enzymes have GT-A type structural fold, which has two tightly associated beta/alpha/beta domains that tend to form a continuous central sheet of at least eight beta-strands. These are enzymes that catalyze the transfer of sugar moieties from activated donor molecules to specific acceptor molecules, forming glycosidic bonds. Glycosyltransferases have been classified into more than 90 distinct sequence based families.
