Reaction catalysed
ATP + UDP-N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanyl-gamma-D-glutamyl-L-lysine + D-alanyl-D-alanine <=> ADP + phosphate + UDP-N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanyl-gamma-D-glutamyl-L-lysyl-D-alanyl-D-alanine
  • Involved with EC, EC or EC, EC and EC in the synthesis of a cell-wall peptide.
  • Also catalyzes the reaction when the C-terminal residue of the tripeptide is meso-2,4-diaminoheptanedioate (acylated at its L-center), linking the D-Ala--D-Ala to the carboxy group of the L-center.
  • Formerly EC
