Dipeptide epimerase (IPR034603)

Short name: Dipeptide_epimerase

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



Enzymes in the dipeptide epimerase family catalyze the epimerization of dipeptides, with the preferred substrate often L-Ala-D/L-Glu. Based on genomic context and substrate specificity, these enzymes may be involved in metabolism of the murein peptide, of which L-Ala-D-Glu is a component [PMID: 19000819, PMID: 22392983].
