Bacterial lipoproteins are a set of proteins modified at their N-terminal with N-Acyl Diacyl Glyceryl group (derived from phospholipids), which serves to anchor these proteins to carry out important functions efficiently at the membrane-aqueous interface. Bacterial lipid modification is ubiquitous in and unique to bacteria. It's biosynthetic pathway is essential for bacterial viability.
