|Function from GO|
See Help:Quickview for help with entering information in the Quickview table.
MltB cleaves the glycosidic bonds between the N-acetylmuramic acid and N-acetylglucosamine residues in murein. Slt35 is a soluble form of MltB with the lipid-anchored N-terminus cleaved after Phe39 during purification. The N-terminus of Slt35 has been identified by protein sequencing, but Slt35 is is an artifact of proteolysis during purification. First 18 aa are a type II signal peptide.
