SMART accession number:SM00644
Description: -
Interpro abstract (IPR002502):

Proteins containing this domain include zinc amidases that have N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanine amidase activity EC . This enzyme domain cleaves the amide bond between N-acetylmuramoyl and L-amino acids in bacterial cell walls (preferentially: D-lactyl-L-Ala). The bacteriophage endolysins PLY118 and PLY500 cleave between L-Ala and D-Glu residues of Listeria cell-wall peptidoglycan and are therefore peptidases (MEROPS subfamily M15C) [ (PUBMED:8577256) ]. The structure is known for the Bacteriophage T7 structure and shows that two of the conserved histidines are zinc binding [ (PUBMED:14506276) (PUBMED:12845326) (PUBMED:8171031) (PUBMED:15223330) (PUBMED:16556841) (PUBMED:18304640) (PUBMED:15140887) (PUBMED:16103125) (PUBMED:16428381) ].
