IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
N-benzyloxycarbonylglycine hydrolase
Other names:
Nα-benzyloxycarbonyl amino acid urethane hydrolase
Nα-benzyloxycarbonyl amino acid urethane hydrolase I
Nα-carbobenzoxyamino acid amidohydrolase
benzyloxycarbonylglycine hydrolase
Systematic name:
N-benzyloxycarbonylglycine urethanehydrolase




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 Nα-benzyloxycarbonylleucine hydrolase.
