CommentThis protein is part of the teichoic acid operon in gram-positive organisms. Gram positive organisms incorporate teichoic acid in their cell walls, and in the fatty acid residues of the glycolipid component of the outer layer of the cytoplasmic membrane. This gene, dltC, encodes the alanyl carrier protein.
