Description: Murein peptide ligase (Mpl) is an enzyme found in Gram-negative bacteria. It catalyses the addition of tripeptide l-Ala-γ-d-Glu-meso-diaminopimelate to nucleotide precursor UDP-N-acetylmuramic acid during the recycling of peptidoglycan.Tripeptide with Xaa = ε-d-Lys proved to be an excellent substrate of Escherichia coli Mpl in vitro.Although a good Mpl substrate, the d-Lys-containing tripeptide was devoid of antibacterial activity against E. coli, presumably owing to poor uptake.
