ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
methylenediurea deaminase.
Alternative Name(s)
Reaction catalysed
2 H(+) + 2 H2O + methylenediurea <=> CO2 + N-(hydroxymethyl)urea + 2 NH4(+)
  • The methylenediurea is hydrolyzed and decarboxylated to give an aminated methylurea, which then spontaneously hydrolyzes to hydroxymethylurea.
  • The enzyme from Ochrobactrum anthropi also hydrolyzes dimethylenetriurea and trimethylenetetraurea as well as ureidoglycolate, which is hydrolyzed to urea and glyoxylate, and allantoate, which is hydrolyzed to ureidoglycolate, ammonia and carbon dioxide.
