Reaction catalysed
A purine nucleoside + H(2)O <=> D-ribose + a purine base
  • The enzyme from the bacterium Ochrobactrum anthropi specifically catalyzes the irreversible N-riboside hydrolysis of purine nucleosides.
  • Pyrimidine nucleosides, purine and pyrimidine nucleotides, NAD(+), NADP(+) and nicotinaminde mononucleotide are not substrates.
