[en] The DD-carboxypeptidase (I)-transpeptidase (II) system in Streptomyces strain K15 consists of: (1) a membrane-bound II capable of performing low I activity; and (2) a set of I: (a) membrane-bound, (b) lysozyme-releasable, and (c) exocellular, having low II activities in aq. media and at low acceptor concns. The I are related to each other and may belong to the same pathway leading to enzyme excretion. A similar system occurs in Streptomyces strain R61 except that the membrane-bound I activity is low when compared with the membrane-bound II activity. In S. rimosus, the system consists almost exclusively of the membrane-bound II and the levels of membrane-bound, lysozyme-releasable, and exocellular I are very low. [on SciFinder(R)]
