  • 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]
