  Domain Name: GH18_CFLE_spore_hydr
Cortical fragment-lytic enzyme (CFLE) is a peptidoglycan hydrolase involved in bacterial endospore germination. CFLE is expressed as an inactive preprotein (called SleB) in the forespore compartment of sporulating cells. SleB translocates across the forespore inner membrane and is deposited as a mature enzyme in the cortex layer of the spore. As part of a sensory mechanism capable of initiating germination, CFLE degrades a spore-specific peptidoglycan constituent called muramic-acid delta-lactam that comprises the outer cortex. CFLE has a C-terminal glycosyl hydrolase family 18 (GH18) catalytic domain as well as two N-terminal LysM peptidoglycan-binding domains. In addition to SleB, this family includes YaaH, YdhD, and YvbX from Bacillus subtilis.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
