FUNCTIONMurein-degrading enzyme. May play a role in recycling of muropeptides during cell elongation and/or cell division.
CATALYTIC ACTIVITY Reaction=Exolytic cleavage of the (1->4)-beta-glycosidic linkage between N-acetylmuramic acid (MurNAc) and N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) residues in peptidoglycan, from either the reducing or the non-reducing ends of the peptidoglycan chains, with concomitant formation of a 1,6-anhydrobond in the MurNAc residue.; EC=4.2.2.n1;
case <Feature:PS51257>
SUBCELLULAR LOCATIONCell outer membrane; Lipid-anchor.
end case
SIMILARITYBelongs to the transglycosylase Slt family.
