Murein DD-endopeptidase MepS/Murein LD-carboxypeptidase

Gene

mepS

Organism
Escherichia coli (strain K12)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 5 out of 5-Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

A murein DD-endopeptidase with specificity for D-Ala-meso-diaminopimelic acid (mDAP) cross-links. Its role is probably to cleave D-Ala-mDAP cross-links to allow insertion of new glycans and thus cell wall expansion. Functionally redundant with MepM and MepH. Also has weak LD-carboxypeptidase activity on L-mDAP-D-Ala peptide bonds. Partially suppresses a prc disruption mutant.2 Publications

Catalytic activityi

GlcNAc-MurNAc-L-alanyl-gamma-D-glutamyl-meso-diaminopimelyl-D-alanine + H2O = GlcNAc-MurNAc-L-alanyl-gamma-D-glutamyl-meso-diaminopimelate + D-alanine.

Disruption phenotypei

Unable to grow on nutrient agar at 42 degrees Celsius. A triple mepS-mepH-mepM mutant is inviable, whereas a double mepS-mepM will grow on a nutrient-poor medium but not on a rich medium, suggesting the 3 endopeptidases are functionally redundant in vivo. Depletion experiments of the double or triple mutants lead to cell lysis, as well as significantly decreased incorporation of mDAP into peptidogylcan sacculi and increased amounts of the enzyme's substrate (Tetra-Tetra-anhydro muropeptide).2 Publications

Links to similar proteins from the UniProt Reference Clusters (UniRef) at 100%, 90% and 50% sequence identity:
100%UniRef100 combines identical sequences and sub-fragments with 11 or more residues from any organism into one UniRef entry.
90%UniRef90 is built by clustering UniRef100 sequences that have at least 90% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence (a.k.a seed sequence).
50%UniRef50 is built by clustering UniRef90 seed sequences that have at least 50% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence in the cluster.
