Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Enzyme: anhydro-N-acetylmuramic acid kinase

Gene: anmK Accession Numbers: G6880 (EcoCyc), b1640, ECK1636

Synonyms: ydhH

Regulation Summary Diagram: ?

Regulation summary diagram for anmK

AnmK is one of the enzymes responsible for the recycling of murein. Anhydro-N-acetylmuramic acid (anhMurNAc) is produced by the cleavage of muropeptide by NagZ (between the GlcNAc and the anhMurNAc moieties) and AmpD (between the anhMurNAc and peptide moieties), and AnmK catalyzes the hydrolysis of the 1,6-anhydro bond and simultaneous phosphorylation of anhMurNAc to N-acetylmuramate 6-phosphate. An etherase then cleaves the ether bond between the GlcNAc and D-lactate moieties of N-acetylmuramate 6-phosphate [Uehara05].

In an anmK null mutant, anhMurNAc does not accumulate inside the cell, although no other enzyme activity that is able to modify anhMurNAc can be detected. When anhMurNAc can not be phosphorylated, it is lost into the medium instead [Uehara05].
