Abstract: Clostridium perfringens spores employ two peptidoglycan lysins to degrade the spore cortex during germination. SleC initiates cortex hydrolysis to generate cortical fragments that are degraded further by the muramidase SleM. Here, we present the crystal structure of the C. perfringens S40 SleM protein at 1.8 Å. SleM comprises an N-terminal catalytic domain that adopts an irregular α/β-barrel fold that is common to GH25 family lysozymes, plus a C-terminal fibronectin type III domain. The latter is involved in f…
