Ala_racemase_C

Alanine racemase, C-terminal domain
Ala_racemase_C
SMART accession number:SM01005
Description: Alanine racemase plays a role in providing the D-alanine required for cell wall biosynthesis by isomerising L-alanine to D-alanine. Proteins contains this domain are found in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic proteins (PUBMED:1676385),(PUBMED:7871888).
Interpro abstract (IPR011079):

Alanine racemase (EC 5.1.1.1) plays a role in providing the D-alanine required for cell wall biosynthesis by isomerising L-alanine to D-alanine.

The molecular structure of alanine racemase from Bacillus stearothermophilus (Geobacillus stearothermophilus) was determined by X-ray crystallography to a resolution of 1.9 A [(PUBMED:9063881)]. The alanine racemase monomer is composed of two domains, an eight-stranded alpha/beta barrel at the N terminus, and a C-terminal domain essentially composed of beta-strand. This entry represents the C-terminal domain.
