Accepted name: UDP-N-acetylmuramate—L-alanyl-γ-D-glutamyl-meso-2,6-diaminoheptanedioate ligase
Reaction: ATP + UDP-N-acetyl-α-D-muramate + L-alanyl-γ-D-glutamyl-meso-2,6-diaminoheptanedioate = ADP + phosphate + UDP-N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanyl-γ-D-glutamyl-meso-2,6-diaminoheptanedioate
Glossary: meso-2,6-diaminoheptanedioate = meso-2,6-diaminopimelate
Other name(s): murein peptide ligase; Mpl; yjfG (gene name); UDP-MurNAc:L-Ala-γ-D-Glu-meso-A2pm ligase; UDP-N-acetylmuramate:L-alanyl-γ-D-glutamyl-meso-diaminopimelate ligase
Systematic name: UDP-N-acetylmuramate:L-alanyl-γ-D-glutamyl-meso-2,6-diaminoheptanedioate ligase2015
Comments: The enzyme catalyses the reincorporation into peptidoglycan of the tripeptide L-alanyl-γ-D-glutamyl-2,6-meso-diaminoheptanedioate released during the maturation and constant remodeling of this bacterial cell wall polymer that occur during cell growth and division. The enzyme can also use the tetrapeptide L-alanyl-γ-D-glutamyl-meso-2,6-diaminoheptanedioyl-D-alanine or the pentapeptide L-alanyl-γ-D-glutamyl-meso-2,6-diaminoheptanedioyl-D-alanyl-D-alanine in vivo and in vitro. Requires Mg2+.
