    Phenotypes of a mutant

  • the mutant divides over unsegregated chromosomes more frequently than wild-type cells, and this phenotype is exacerbated when DNA replication is inhibited [Pubmed|21169496]
  • increased sensitivity to a narrow spectrum of cephalosporin antibiotics [Pubmed|21169496]
  • disruption of the corresponding gene in B. anthracis results in a mutator phenotype [Pubmed|21205011]
  • The protein

    Catalyzed reaction/ biological activity

  • 5'-3' exonuclease activity at the 5' termini and at nicks of double-stranded DNA [Pubmed|23491602]
  • the enzymatic activity of WalJ directly or indirectly affects cell wall metabolism and is required for accurate coordination of [SW|cell division] with DNA replication [Pubmed|21169496]
  • Protein family

  • predicted member of the metallo-β-lactamase superfamily
  • [SW|Cofactors]

  • Mn(II) [Pubmed|23491602]
