The Chemical Reactions and Pathways Including Anabolism and Catabolism by Which Living Organisms Transform Chemical Substances. Metabolic Processes Typically Transform Small Molecules But Also Include Macromolecular Processes Such As DNA Repair and Replication and Protein Synthesis and Degradation.
The Chemical Reactions and Pathways Resulting in the Formation of Lipoteichoic Acid Which Is a Major Component of the Cell Wall of Gram Positive Bacteria and Typically Consists of a Chain of Glycerol Phosphate Repeating Units Linked to a Glycolipid Anchor.
Interacting Selectively and Non Covalently with a Nucleotide Any Compound Consisting of a Nucleoside That Is Esterified with (ortho)phosphate or an Oligophosphate At Any Hydroxyl Group On the Ribose or Deoxyribose.
Catalysis of a Biochemical Reaction At Physiological Temperatures. in Biologically Catalyzed Reactions the Reactants Are Known As Substrates and the Catalysts Are Naturally Occurring Macromolecular Substances Known As Enzymes. Enzymes Possess Specific Binding Sites For Substrates and Are Usually Composed Wholly or Largely of Protein But RNA That Has Catalytic Activity (ribozyme) Is Often Also Regarded As Enzymatic.
Ligase Activity Forming Aminoacyl TRNA and Related Compounds
Catalysis of the Joining of an Amino Acid and a Nucleic Acid (usually Trna) or Poly(ribitol Phosphate) with the Concomitant Hydrolysis of the Diphosphate Bond in ATP or a Similar Triphosphate. the Reaction Forms an Aminoacyl TRNA or a Related Compound.
