Quick Reference

EC; other name: N‐acetylmuramoyl‐l‐alanine amidase; an enzyme that catalyses the hydrolysis of the link between N‐acetylmuramoyl residues and l‐amino‐acid residues in certain bacterial cell‐wall glycopeptides. The enzyme is required for cell separation, cell‐wall turnover, etc. See also lysostaphin.
