Penicillin binding protein transglycosylase domain (IPR036950)

Short name: PBP_transglycosylase

Overlapping entries


Penicillin-binding proteins, such as Escherichia coli PBP1b, are bifunctional transglycosylases that consist of a transmembrane helix, a transglycosylase domain and a transpeptidase domain [PMID: 19458048]. The transglycosylase domain catalyses the polymerisation of murein glycan chains [PMID: 12867450]. This domain is also found on its own in monofunctional peptidoglycan transglycosylases [PMID: 8830253].
