Domain

Putative peptidoglycan binding domain (IPR022029)

Short name: PG_binding_4

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This domain is found associated with the L,D-transpeptidase domain PF03734. The structure of this domain has been solved and shows a mixed alpha-beta fold composed of nine beta strands and four alpha helices. This domain is usually found to be duplicated. Therefore, it seems likely that this domain acts to bind the two unlinked peptidoglycan chains and bring them into close association so they can be cross linked by the transpeptidase domain.
