(KDO)-lipid IVA 3-deoxy-D-manno-octulosonic acid transferase (EC 2.4.99.13, KDO transferase, waaA (gene), kdtA (gene), Kdo transferase, 3-deoxy-D-manno-oct-2-ulosonic acid transferase, 3-deoxy-manno-octulosonic acid transferase) is an enzyme with systematic name CMP-3-deoxy-D-manno-oct-2-ulosonate:(KDO)-lipid IVA 3-deoxy-D-manno-oct-2-ulosonate transferase.[1][2] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

alpha-Kdo-(2->6)-lipid IVA + CMP-alpha-Kdo alpha-Kdo-(2->4)-alpha-Kdo-(2->6)-lipid IVA + CMP

The bifunctional enzyme from Escherichia coli transfers two 3-deoxy-D-manno-oct-2-ulosonate residues to lipid IVA.
