Abstract

SUMMARY: The incubation of peptidoglycan fragments with ether-treated cells of resulted in breakdown products that showed the presence of previously undescribed lytic enzymes. The properties of an endopeptidase able to hydrolyse peptide-linked bis-disaccharide peptide dimer to monomer units were examined. An -acetyl-glucosaminidase was also shown to release free -acetylglucosamine. The breakdown pattern of glycosidically-linked dimer indicated the existence of an -acetylglucosaminidase. The activities of the latter enzyme and of the endopeptidase were both sensitive to β-llactam antibiotics.
