STRING protein interaction network
Network nodes represent proteins
splice isoforms or post-translational modifications are collapsed, i.e. each node represents all the proteins produced by a single, protein-coding gene locus.
Node Color
colored nodes:
query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes:
second shell of interactors
Node Content
empty nodes:
proteins of unknown 3D structure
filled nodes:
some 3D structure is known or predicted
Edges represent protein-protein associations
associations are meant to be specific and meaningful, i.e. proteins jointly contribute to a shared function; this does not necessarily mean they are physically binding to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology

ldcAMuramoyltetrapeptide carboxypeptidase; Releases the terminal D-alanine residue from the cytoplasmic tetrapeptide recycling product L-Ala-gamma-D-Glu-meso-Dap-D-Ala. To a lesser extent, can also cleave D-Ala from murein derivatives containing the tetrapeptide, i.e. MurNAc-tetrapeptide, UDP-MurNAc-tetrapeptide, GlcNAc-MurNAc-tetrapeptide, and GlcNAc-anhMurNAc-tetrapeptide. Does not act on murein sacculi or cross-linked muropeptides. The tripeptides produced by the LcdA reaction can then be reused as peptidoglycan building blocks; LcdA is thereby involved in murein recycling. Is also esse [...] (304 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
UDP-N-acetylmuramate--L-alanyl-gamma-D-glutamyl-meso-2,6-diaminoheptanedioate ligase; Reutilizes the intact tripeptide L-alanyl-gamma-D-glutamyl- meso-diaminopimelate by linking it to UDP-N-acetylmuramate. The enzyme can also use the tetrapeptide L-alanyl-gamma-D-glutamyl-meso-2,6- diaminoheptanedioyl-D-alanine or the pentapeptide L-alanyl-gamma-D- glutamyl-meso-2,6-diaminoheptandioyl-D-alanyl-D-alanine in vivo and in vitro
1,6-anhydro-N-acetylmuramyl-L-alanine amidase, Zn-dependent; Involved in cell wall peptidoglycan recycling . Specifically cleaves the amide bond between the lactyl group of N-acetylmuramic acid and the alpha-amino group of the L-alanine in degradation products containing an anhydro N-acetylmuramyl moiety . Is also involved in beta-lactamase induction
1,6-anhydro-N-acetylmuramyl-L-alanine amidase, Zn-dependent; N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanine amidase AmiD; Putative regulator; Not classified
Murein tripeptide amidase a; Involved in muropeptide degradation. Catalyzes the hydrolysis of the gamma-D-glutamyl-diaminopimelic acid (gamma-D-Glu-Dap) amide bond in the murein tripeptide L-alanyl-gamma-D-glutamyl-meso- diaminopimelic acid, leading to the formation of L-Ala-gamma-D-Glu and Dap . Has weak activity with L-Ala- gamma-D-Glu-L-Lys, MurNAc-tripeptide and gamma-D-Glu-meso-Dap . Cannot hydrolyze murein tetrapeptide
Anhydro-n-acetylmuramic acid kinase; Catalyzes the specific phosphorylation of 1,6-anhydro-N- acetylmuramic acid (anhMurNAc) with the simultaneous cleavage of the 1,6-anhydro ring, generating MurNAc-6-P. Is required for the utilization of anhMurNAc either imported from the medium or derived from its own cell wall murein, and thus plays a role in cell wall recycling
Beta n-acetyl-glucosaminidase; Plays a role in peptidoglycan recycling by cleaving the terminal beta-1,4-linked N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) from peptide- linked peptidoglycan fragments, giving rise to free GlcNAc, anhydro-N- acetylmuramic acid and anhydro-N-acetylmuramic acid-linked peptides. Cleaves GlcNAc linked beta-1,4 to MurNAc tripeptides
Mfs transporter, pat family, beta-lactamase induction signal transducer ampg; Permease involved in cell wall peptidoglycan recycling . Transports, from the periplasm into the cytoplasm, the disaccharide N-acetylglucosaminyl-beta-1,4-anhydro- N-acetylmuramic acid (GlcNAc-anhMurNAc) and GlcNAc-anhMurNAc-peptides . Transport is dependent on the proton motive force . AmpG is also involved in beta-lactamase induction
Serine-type d-ala-d-ala carboxypeptidase/endopeptidase (penicillin-binding protein 4); Not involved in transpeptidation but exclusively catalyzes a DD-carboxypeptidase and DD-endopeptidase reaction
N-acetylmuramic acid 6-phosphate (murnac-6-p) etherase; Specifically catalyzes the cleavage of the D-lactyl ether substituent of MurNAc 6-phosphate, producing GlcNAc 6-phosphate and D- lactate. Is required for growth on MurNAc as the sole source of carbon and energy. Together with AnmK, is also required for the utilization of anhydro-N-acetylmuramic acid (anhMurNAc) either imported from the medium or derived from its own cell wall murein, and thus plays a role in cell wall recycling
Trna-specific adenosine deaminase; Catalyzes the deamination of adenosine to inosine at the wobble position 34 of tRNA(Arg2). Essential for cell viability
