IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 3.5.1.76

Names

Accepted name:
arylalkyl acylamidase
Other name:
aralkyl acylamidase
Systematic name:
N-acetylarylalkylamine amidohydrolase

Reactions

Comments:

Identified in Pseudomonas putida. Strict specificity for N-acetyl arylalkylamines, including N-acetyl-2-phenylethylamine, N-acetyl-3-phenylpropylamine, N-acetyldopamine, N-acetyl-serotonin and melatonin. It also accepts arylalkyl acetates but not acetanilide derivatives, which are common substrates of aryl acylamidase (EC 3.5.1.13).
