Sequence cautioni

The sequence AAB40832 differs from that shown. Reason: Erroneous initiation. Translation N-terminally shortened.Curated

Natural variant

Feature keyPosition(s)DescriptionActionsGraphical viewLength
Natural varianti134G → D in mutant dacA11191; inactive but still binds penicillin. Blocked in the release of the bound penicilloyl moiety; the mutant also fails to catalyze the D-alanine carboxypeptidase reaction as the hydrolysis of the acyl-enzyme formed with substrate is also blocked and the acyl-enzyme accumulates. 1
