EC 3.5.4.8 is Orphan !
Common name :Aminoimidazolase

Systematic name :4-aminoimidazole aminohydrolase

Other names :4-aminoimidazole hydrolase
4-aminoimidazole deaminase
Cofactors : Fe(2+).

Comments :Requires Fe(2+). This enzyme forms part of the xanthine-degradation pathway in some bacteria. The product of the reaction, imidazol-4-one, can be converted non-enzymically into formiminoglycine. An enzyme has been identified in Clostridium cylindrosporum that can perform this hydrolysis reaction (2,3). Forms part of the xanthine-degradation pathway in some bacteria. The product of the reaction, imidazol-4-one, can be converted non-enzymically into formiminoglycine.

Created :EC 3.5.4.8 created 1961

KEGG MAP : 00230 Purine metabolism

BRENDA organisms :Clostridium cylindrosporum
