Accepted name: D-alanine—D-serine ligase
Reaction: D-alanine + D-serine + ATP = D-alanyl-D-serine + ADP + phosphate
Other name(s): VanC; VanE; VanG
Systematic name: D-alanine:D-serine ligase (ADP-forming)
Comments: The product of this enzyme, D-alanyl-D-serine, can be incorporated into the peptidoglycan pentapeptide instead of the usual D-alanyl-D-alanine dipeptide, which is formed by EC, D-alanine—D-alanine ligase. The resulting peptidoglycan does not bind the glycopeptide antibiotics vancomycin and teicoplanin, conferring resistance on the bacteria.
