ENZYME entry: EC 3.13.1.8

Accepted Name
S-adenosyl-L-methionine hydrolase (adenosine-forming).
Alternative Name(s)
SAM hydroxide adenosyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
S-adenosyl-L-methionine + H(2)O <=> adenosine + L-methionine
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, found in bacteria and archaea, catalyzes a nucleophilic attack of water at the C5' carbon of S-adenosyl-L-methionine to generate adenosine and L-methionine.
  • May be involved in regulating SAM levels in the cell.
  • Cf. EC 3.3.1.2.
