IUBMB Comments
The enzyme is involved in degradation of nylon-6 oligomers. It degrades linear or cyclic oligomers of poly(6-aminohexanoate) with a degree of polymerization greater than three (n > 3) by endo-type cleavage, to oligomers of a length of two or more (2 <= x < n). It shows negligible activity with N-(6-aminohexanoyl)-6-aminohexanoate (cf. EC 3.5.1.46, 6-aminohexanoate-oligomer exo hydrolase) or with 1,8-diazacyclotetradecane-2,9-dione (cf. EC 3.5.2.12, 6-aminohexanoate-cyclic-dimer hydrolase).
