Abstract

Summary: Lysine was found in the vegetative peptidoglycan of Bacillus sphaericus (23 strains), and of the related species and . None of these organisms formed diaminopimelate epimerase, but all contained diaminopimelate dehydrogenase. All other species of studied had diaminopimelate in their walls, and produced diaminopimelate epimerase and -acetyldiaminopimelate deacetylase, but not diaminopimelate dehydrogenase. One exception, , contained all three of these enzymes; diaminopimelate (and no lysine) was found in its walls. A new spectrophotometric assay for diaminopimelate epimerase was developed, which had advantages over the previous methods.
