EC 6.3.4.8 is Orphan !
Common name :Imidazoleacetate--phosphoribosyldiphosphate ligase

Systematic name :Imidazoleacetate:5-phosphoribosyl-diphosphate ligase (ADP- and diphosphate-forming)

Other names :5-phosphoribosylimidazoleacetate synthetase
Comments :A biotinyl-protein. The yeast enzyme (but not that from green algae) also catalyzes the reaction of EC 3.5.1.54 allophanate hydrolase, thus bringing about the hydrolysis of urea to CO(2) and NH(3). Previously also listed as EC 3.5.1.45. The enzyme from the prokaryotic bacterium Oleomonas sagaranensis can also use acetamide and formamide as substrates (4). The Saccharomyces cerevisiae enzyme (but not that from green algae) also catalyzes the reaction of EC 3.5.1.54, thus bringing about the hydrolysis of urea to CO(2) and NH(3). The enzyme from the prokaryotic bacterium Oleomonas sagaranensis can also use acetamide and formamide as substrates. Formerly EC 3.5.1.45.
