UDP-N-acetylglucosamine---decaprenyl-phosphate N-acetylglucosaminephosphotransferase (EC 2.7.8.35, GlcNAc-1-phosphate transferase, UDP-GlcNAc:undecaprenyl phosphate GlcNAc-1-phosphate transferase, WecA, WecA transferase) is an enzyme with systematic name UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine:trans,octacis-decaprenyl-phosphate N-acetylglucosaminephosphotransferase. This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine + trans,octacis-decaprenyl phosphate UMP + N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosaminyl-diphospho-trans,octacis-decaprenol

This enzyme is isolated from Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Mycobacterium smegmatis.
