Family

Penicillin-binding protein 1B (IPR011813)

Short name: PBP_1b

Family relationships

None.

Description

Bacterial that synthesize a cell wall of peptidoglycan (murein) generally have several transglycosylases and transpeptidases for the task. This family consists of a particular bifunctional transglycosylase/transpeptidase in Escherichia coli and other Proteobacteria, designated penicillin-binding protein 1B. It's structure has been resolved [PMID: 19458048].
