A new class EC 7, Translocases, has been added to the EC list. It will be part of ENZYME from release 2018_10. Read more about EC 7 here.

ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Maleimide hydrolase.
Alternative Name(s)
Cyclic imide hydrolase.
Reaction catalysed
Maleimide + H(2)O <=> maleamic acid
  • 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
