ENZYME entry: EC 2.3.2.18

Accepted Name
N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanyl-D-glutamyl-L-lysyl-(N(6)-triglycine)-D-alanyl- D-alanine-diphosphoundecaprenyl-N-acetylglucosamine:glycine glycyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
MurNAc-L-Ala-D-isoglutaminyl-L-Lys-(N(6)-tri-Gly)-D-Ala-D-Ala-diphospho-ditrans,octacis-undecaprenyl-GlcNAc + 2 glycyl-tRNA <=> MurNAc-L-Ala-D-isoglutaminyl-L-Lys-(N(6)-penta-Gly)-D-Ala-D-Ala-diphospho-ditrans,octacis-undecaprenyl-GlcNAc + 2 tRNA
Comment(s)
  • This Staphylococcus aureus enzyme catalyzes the successive transfer of two glycine moieties from charged tRNAs to MurNAc-L-Ala-D- isoglutaminyl-L-Lys-(N(6)-tri-Gly)-D-Ala-D-Ala-diphospho- ditrans,octacis-undecaprenyl-GlcNAc, attaching them to the three glycine molecules that were previously attached to the N(6) of the L-lysine at position 3 of the pentapeptide by EC 2.3.2.16 (FemX) and EC 2.3.2.17 (FemA).
  • This is the last step in the synthesis of the pentaglycine interpeptide bridge that is used in this organism for the crosslinking of different glycan strands to each other.
