Accepted name: anhydro-N-acetylmuramic acid kinase
Reaction: ATP + 1,6-anhydro-N-acetyl-β-muramate + H2O = ADP + N-acetylmuramate 6-phosphate
Other name(s): anhMurNAc kinase; AnmK
Systematic name: ATP:1,6-anhydro-N-acetyl-β-muramate 6-phosphotransferase
Comments: This enzyme, along with EC, N-acetylmuramic acid 6-phosphate etherase, is required for the utilization of anhydro-N-acetylmuramic acid in proteobacteria. The substrate is either imported from the medium or derived from the bacterium’s own cell wall murein during cell wall recycling. The product N-acetylmuramate 6-phosphate is produced as a 7:1 mixture of the α- and β-anomers.
