p-Aminobenzoyl-glutamate hydrolase subunit A (IPR033845)

Short name: AbgA

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


This entry includes p-aminobenzoyl-glutamate hydrolase subunit A (AbgA; MEROPS identifier M20.020). Together with subunit B it forms the heterodimer AbgAB, which has been shown not to be a dipeptidase, but to hydrolyse p-aminobenzoyl-glutamate (PABA-GLU) to form p-aminobenzoate (PABA) and glutamate [PMID: 17307853,PMID: 20190044].

AbgA is greatly similar to indole-3-acetyl-aspartic acid hydrolase from Enterobacter agglomerans [PMID: 9747708, PMID: 9829935], also included in this family.
