Isopeptide ligation catalyzed by quintessential sortase A: mechanistic cues from cyclic and branched oligomers of indolicidin.


The housekeeping transpeptidase sortase A (SrtA) from Staphyloccocus aureus catalyzes the covalent anchoring of surface proteins to the cell wall by linking the threonyl carboxylate of the LPXTG recognition motif to the amino group of the pentaglycine cross-bridge of the peptidoglycan. SrtA-catalyzed ligation of an LPXTG containing polypeptide with an… (More)
