Also known as CMP-KDO synthase(CKS). E. coli K-12 only has the L-CKS isozyme involved in LPS biosynthesis. The K-CKS isozyme KpsU is specific for K5 group II capsule biosynthesis , is 45% identical to KdsB, and has been characterized from E. coli K5 isolate #2980 (Genbank:X74567, UniProtKB:P42216; PDB:1H7E).[2]
