General description

D-Glutamic acid is an essential constituent of the bacterial peptidoglycan structure. It is added to UDP-N-acetylmuramyl-L-alanine (UDP-MurNAc-L-alanine) by the enzyme D-glutamic acid-adding enzyme (murD). This is, then, incorporated into the peptidoglycan precursor. Peptidoglycan makes up the cell walls of Gram-positive and -negative bacteria. The conversion of L-glutamate to D-glutamate by glutamate racemase (GR) enzyme is an essential step in the synthesis of peptidoglycan.


D-glutamic acid is suitable for use in the structure-affinity relationship (SAR)-study of GR (glutamate racemase) enzyme and its inhibitors.
