NagA is a member of the amidohydrolase superfamily and catalyzes the deacetylation of N-acetyl-d-glucosamine-6-phosphate. The catalytic mechanism of this enzyme was addressed by the characterization of the catalytic properties of metal-substituted derivatives of NagA from Escherichia coli with a variety...
