The biosynthesis of the pentapeptide is completed by addition not of an amino acid but of a dipeptide, o-alanyl-o-alanine, which is separately synthesized. A racemase acting on L-alanine gives o-alanine, and a ligase then joins two molecules, giving the dipeptide. The completed UDP-N-acetylmuramyl intermediate (V) with its pendant peptide group will be referred to as the 'nucleotide pentapeptide'. 4 acid. 20 Peptidoglycan synthesis in Staphylococcus aureus. 5 Peptidoglycan synthesis.
