IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 3.1.1.101

Names

Accepted name:
poly(ethylene terephthalate) hydrolase
Other names:
PETase
PET hydrolase
Systematic name:
poly(ethylene terephthalate) hydrolase

Reaction

Comments:

The enzyme, isolated from the bacterium Ideonella sakaiensis, also produces small amounts of terephthalate (cf. EC 3.1.1.102, mono(ethylene terephthalate) hydrolase). The reaction takes place on PET-film placed in solution.
