Amino acid sequence of the murein of Planococcus and other Micrococcaceae.


The amino acid composition and amino acid sequence of the murein (peptidoglycan) of 10 strains of planococci were studied. It is shown that the peptide subunit consists of muramyl-l-alanyl-gamma-d-glutamyl-l-lysyl-d -alanine. The cross-linking of two adjacent peptide subunits is mediated by d-glutamic acid which is bound to the epsilon-amino group of lysine… (More)
