Accepted name: zinc D-Ala-D-Ala carboxypeptidase
Reaction: Cleavage of the bond: (Ac)2-L-lysyl-D-alanyl┼D-alanine
Other name(s): Zn2+ G peptidase; D-alanyl-D-alanine hydrolase; D-alanyl-D-alanine-cleaving carboxypeptidase; DD-carboxypeptidase; G enzyme; DD-carboxypeptidase-transpeptidase
Comments: A zinc enzyme. Catalyses carboxypeptidation but not transpeptidation reactions involved in bacterial cell wall metabolism. Weakly inhibited by β-lactams. In peptidase family M15. Distinct from EC, serine-type D-Ala-D-Ala carboxypeptidase.
