SMART accession number:SM00644
Description: -
Interpro abstract (IPR002502): Proteins families 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 structure is known for the Bacteriophage T7 structure and shows that two of the conserved histidines are zinc binding.
GO process:peptidoglycan catabolic process (GO:0009253)
GO function:N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanine amidase activity (GO:0008745)
