ENZYME entry: EC 3.5.4.44

Accepted Name
Ectoine hydrolase.
Reaction catalysed
Ectoine + H(2)O <=> (2S)-2-acetamido-4-aminobutanoate
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, found in some halophilic bacteria, is involved in the degradation of the compatible solute ectoine.
  • The enzyme, which belongs to peptidase family M24, only acts in the direction of ectoine hydrolysis.
  • It also produces smaller amounts of (2S)-4-acetamido-2- aminobutanoate, which is recycled back to ectoine by EC 4.2.1.108.
