Comments [?]

case <OC:Proteobacteria>
Function Specifically catalyzes the cleavage of the D-lactyl ether substituent of MurNAc 6-phosphate, producing GlcNAc 6-phosphate and D-lactate. 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.
else
Function Specifically catalyzes the cleavage of the D-lactyl ether substituent of MurNAc 6-phosphate, producing GlcNAc 6-phosphate and D-lactate.
end case
Catalytic activity Reaction=H2O + N-acetyl-D-muramate 6-phosphate = (R)-lactate + N-acetyl-D-glucosamine 6-phosphate; Xref=Rhea:RHEA:26410, ChEBI:CHEBI:15377, ChEBI:CHEBI:16004, ChEBI:CHEBI:57513, ChEBI:CHEBI:58722; EC=4.2.1.126;.
Pathway Amino-sugar metabolism; N-acetylmuramate degradation.
case <OC:Proteobacteria>
Pathway Amino-sugar metabolism; 1,6-anhydro-N-acetylmuramate degradation.
Cell wall biogenesis; peptidoglycan recycling.
end case
Subunit Homodimer.
case <OC:Enterobacterales>
Induction Induced by MurNAc 6-phosphate that releases the repressor MurR from the DNA. Repressed by MurR in the absence of MurNAc 6-phosphate.
end case
Miscellaneous A lyase-type mechanism (elimination/hydration) is suggested for the cleavage of the lactyl ether bond of MurNAc 6-phosphate, with the formation of an alpha,beta-unsaturated aldehyde intermediate with (E)-stereochemistry, followed by the syn addition of water to give product.
Similarity Belongs to the GCKR-like family. MurNAc-6-P etherase subfamily.
