Aliphatic amidase (IPR023719)

Short name: Aliphatic_amidase

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



These enzymes catalyzes the hydrolysis of short-chain aliphatic amides to their corresponding organic acids with release of ammonia [PMID: 10978771]. They also exhibit in vitro acyl transferase activity,transferring the acyl moiety of short-chain amides to hydroxylamine to form hydroxamates. Aliphatic amidases contain 1 CN hydrolase domain. This group of enzyme belongs to the nitrilase superfamily.
