Family

Allantoinase (IPR017593)

Short name: Allantoinase

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships

None.

Description

This protein catalyzes the conversion of allantoin (5-ureidohydantoin) to allantoic acid by hydrolytic cleavage of the five-member hydantoin ring [PMID: 10601204, PMID: 11092864]. The proteins in this family are all in the vicinity of other genes involved in the processes of xanthine/urate/allantoin catabolism.
