In linear amides
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
N-benzyloxycarbonylglycine urethanehydrolase
Reaction(IUBMB)
N-benzyloxycarbonylglycine + H2O = benzyl alcohol + CO2 + glycine [RN:R02551]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
N-benzyloxycarbonylglycine [CPD:C03710];
H2O [CPD:C00001]
Product
benzyl alcohol [CPD:C00556];
CO2 [CPD:C00011];
glycine [CPD:C00037]
Comment
Also acts, more slowly, on N-benzyloxycarbonylalanine, but not on the corresponding derivatives of other amino acids or on N-benzyloxycarbonylpeptides. Requires Co2+ or Zn2+. cf. EC 3.5.1.64, Nalpha-benzyloxycarbonylleucine hydrolase.
