General annotation (Comments)

Function

Catalyzes the addition of meso-diaminopimelic acid to the nucleotide precursor UDP-N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanyl-D-glutamate (UMAG) in the biosynthesis of bacterial cell-wall peptidoglycan By similarity. HAMAP-Rule MF_00208

Catalytic activity

ATP + UDP-N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanyl-D-glutamate + meso-2,6-diaminoheptanedioate = ADP + phosphate + UDP-N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanyl-D-gamma-glutamyl-meso-2,6-diamino-heptanedioate. HAMAP-Rule MF_00208

Pathway

Cell wall biogenesis; peptidoglycan biosynthesis. HAMAP-Rule MF_00208

Subcellular location

Cytoplasm By similarity HAMAP-Rule MF_00208.

Post-translational modification

Carbamoylation is probably crucial for Mg2+ binding and, consequently, for the gamma-phosphate positioning of ATP By similarity. HAMAP-Rule MF_00208

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the MurCDEF family. MurE subfamily.
