ENZYME entry: EC 3.5.2.16

Accepted Name
Maleimide hydrolase.
Alternative Name(s)
Cyclic imide hydrolase.
Imidase.
Reaction catalysed
Maleimide + H(2)O <=> maleamic acid
Comment(s)
  • Succinimide and glutarimide, and sulfur-containing cyclic imides, such as rhodanine, can also act as substrates for the enzyme from Blastobacter sp. A17p-4.
  • The reverse, cyclization, reaction is also catalyzed, but much more slowly.
  • It has lower activity toward cyclic ureides, which are the substrates of EC 3.5.2.2.
