Features Specifications: Alanine Racemase


Mutant Alanine Racemase (Y354N) (mAR-Y354N), a pyridoxal 5-phosphate (PLP) dependent enzyme catalyzes the interconversion of the L-Serine to D-Serine. In WT Alanine Racemase Tyr354 plays a crucial role in defining the strict specificity of AR for alanine, in converting L-Alanine to D-Alanine, which is an important component of the peptidoglycan layer of bacterial cell wall. By mutating the active site Tyr 354 to Asn, the specificity of the enzyme changes and it becomes a racemase with dual specificity for L- Alanine and L-Serine.
