ENZYME entry: EC 3.5.1.60

Accepted Name
N-(long-chain-acyl)ethanolamine deacylase.
Alternative Name(s)
N-acylethanolamine amidohydrolase.
Reaction catalysed
N-(long-chain-acyl)ethanolamine + H(2)O <=> a long-chain carboxylate + ethanolamine
Comment(s)
  • This lysosomal enzyme acts best on palmitoyl ethanolamide, with lower activity on other N-(long-chain-acyl)ethanolamines.
  • It is only active at acidic pH.
  • Unlike EC 3.5.1.99 it does not act on primary amides such as oleamide, and has only a marginal activity with anandamide.
  • The enzyme is translated as an inactive proenzyme, followed by autocatalytic cleavage into two subunits that reassociate to form an active heterodimeric complex.
