ENZYME entry: EC 6.3.2.53

Accepted Name
UDP-N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanine--L-glutamate ligase.
Alternative Name(s)
UDP-MurNAc-L-Ala-L-Glu synthetase.
UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-muramoyl-L-alanyl-L-glutamate synthetase.
Reaction catalysed
ATP + UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-muramoyl-L-alanine + L-glutamate <=> ADP + phosphate + UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-muramoyl-L-alanyl-L-glutamate
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Xanthomonas oryzae, catalyzes the ligation of a terminal L-glutamate to UDP-N-acetyl- alpha-D-muramoyl-L-alanine.
  • The combined activity of this enzyme and EC 5.1.1.23 provides an alternative route for incorporating D-glutamate into peptidoglycan, replacing the more common combination of EC 5.1.1.3 and EC 6.3.2.9.
