    Phenotypes of a mutant

  • essential [Pubmed|12682299]
  • The protein

    Catalyzed reaction/ biological activity

  • septal cell wall synthesis (this function can be taken over by [protein|5BBA2769A9C0EDB56625F008A55470C2E2885AA4|PBP3]) [pubmed|28792086]
  • assembly of the cell division complex (this is the reason for PbpB essentiality) [pubmed|28792086]
  • Protein family

  • transpeptidase family (according to Swiss-Prot)
  • Paralogous protein(s)

  • [protein|38FD9805815BBDDD83789F0F402C0FB221B65FF4|SpoVD]
  • [SW|Domains]

  • contains two C-terminal [SW|PASTA domain]s (aa 598-657, 658-714)
  • Structure

  • [PDB|1RP5] (PBP 2x from ''Streptococcus pneumoniae'', 32% identity) [Pubmed|14734544]
  • [SW|Localization]

  • cell membrane [Pubmed|23869552,20870765]
  • localizes to the division site, this depends on [protein|8AB7D225DBEE6BD695A4A8A2384D2C029B571C57|FtsW] [Pubmed|27895631,23895585]
  • extracellular (signal peptide) [Pubmed|18957862]
  • localizes to the sporulation septum during sporulation [Pubmed|15758244]
  • during vegetative growth: septal [pubmed|14731276]
