IUBMB Comments
This lysosomal enzyme acts best on palmitoyl ethanolamide, with lower activity on other N-(long-chain-acyl)ethanolamines. It is only active at acidic pH. Unlike EC, fatty acid amide hydrolase, it does not act on primary amides such as oleamide, and has only a marginal activity with anandamide. The enzyme is translated as an inactive proenzyme, followed by autocatalytic cleavage into two subunits that reassociate to form an active heterodimeric complex.
