ENZYME entry: EC 6.3.2.7

Accepted Name
UDP-N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanyl-D-glutamate--L-lysine ligase.
Alternative Name(s)
L-lysine-adding enzyme.
MurE synthetase.
UDP-N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanyl-D-glutamyl-L-lysine synthetase.
UPD-MurNAc-L-Ala-D-Glu:L-Lys ligase.
Uridine diphospho-N-acetylmuramoylalanyl-D-glutamyllysine synthetase.
Reaction catalysed
ATP + UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-muramoyl-L-alanyl-D-glutamate + L-lysine <=> ADP + phosphate + UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-muramoyl-L-alanyl-gamma-D-glutamyl-L-lysine
Comment(s)
  • Involved in the synthesis of a cell-wall peptide.
  • This enzyme adds lysine in some Gram-positive organisms; in others and in Gram-negative organisms EC 6.3.2.13 adds 2,6-diaminopimelate instead.
