Biochemical characterization and physiological properties of Escherichia coli UDP-N-acetylmuramate:L-alanyl-gamma-D-glutamyl-meso-diaminopimelate ligase.

Abstract

The UDP-N-acetylmuramate:L-alanyl-gamma-D-glutamyl-meso-diaminopimelate ligase (murein peptide ligase [Mpl]) is known to be a recycling enzyme allowing reincorporation into peptidoglycan (murein) of the tripeptide L-alanyl-gamma-D-glutamyl-meso-diaminopimelate released during the maturation and constant remodeling of this bacterial cell wall polymer that… (More)
