Involved in the synthesis of a cell-wall peptide in bacteria. This enzyme adds diaminopimelate in Gram-negative organisms and in some Gram-positive organisms; in others EC 6.3.2.7 (UDP-N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanyl-D-glutamate---L-lysine ligase) adds lysine instead. It is the amino group of the L-centre of the diaminopimelate that is acylated.
