IUBMB Comments
The enzyme, characterized from the bacteria Escherichia coli and Bacillus subtilis, is involved in the recycling of the murein peptide, of which L-Ala-D-Glu is a component. In vitro the enzyme from Escherichia coli epimerizes several L-Ala-L-X dipeptides with broader specificity than the enzyme from Bacillus subtilis.
