PBP7 is a DD-endopeptidase and is a member of the family of penicillin-binding proteins. It is involved as a auxiliary factor in maintaining the rod shape of the murein sacculus. PBP7 acts by hydrolysing D-alanyl-DAP amide bonds within murein crosslinks.
PPB7 is a soluble, periplasmic protein that is loosely membrane associated [Henderson95, Barbas86]. PBP7 has consensus motifs putting it in the family of penicillin-binding endopeptidases, as well as a signal-sequence cleavage site where its amino-terminus is clipped and a site near the carboxy-terminus where OmpT cleaves it to yield the derivative protein PBP8 [Henderson95]. This latter cleavage is a preparation artifact, as it only occurs following cell lysis or freeze-thaw perturbation of membranes [Henderson94a].
Both PBP7 and its cleavage derivative, PBP8 have D-alanyl-DAP endopeptidase activity capable of cleaving the bonds in murein sacculi but not in dimeric muropeptides [Romeis94a]. PBP7 also has minor LD-endopeptidase activity allowing it to hydrolyze some DAP-DAP murein crosslinks [Romeis94a]. A pbpG deletion mutant has no obvious growth defects [Hara96b, Henderson95]. Overexpression of pbpG also had no effect on growth [Henderson95]. dacA pbpG double mutants have an increased percentage of pentapeptides, increased numbers of crosslinkages, decreased attachment of peptidoglycan to Lpp, and an increased rate of abnormal cell morphology which was exacerbated by further deletion of dacB [Meberg04], dacC, or ampC [Nelson01a, Varma07]. A ftsZ84 dacA pbpG mutant has an increased branching phenotype [Varma04]. ftsZ84 dacA pbpG or ftsZ84 dacB pbpG mutants lyse at the nonpermissive temperature [Varma04]. Inhibition of FtsZ by SulA in a dacA pbpG mutant results in growth of spiral-shaped cells [Varma04]. Further inhibition of MreB or PBP2 in FtsZ-inhibited dacA pbpG mutants results in lemon shaped cells with polar, tubular extensions [Varma07]. Deletion of pbpG in combination with other endopeptidases and amiC results in increased chaining due to deficient septum cleavage during cell division [Priyadarshini06]. pbpG acts as a multicopy suppressor of spr thermosensitivity, which is dependent on the active site serine of PBP7 [Hara96b]. PBP8 levels are increased in minicells [Obermann94].
PBP7 binds a number of antibiotics capable of lysing non-growing cells [Tuomanen87]. PBP7 binds soluble lytic murein transglycosylase, stimulating its enzymatic activity via direct interaction and stabilizing it in vitro> [Romeis94].
