IUBMB Comments
This enzyme, along with EC 3.5.1.87 (N-carbamoyl-L-amino-acid hydrolase), EC 5.1.99.5 (hydantoin racemase) and hydantoinase, forms part of the reaction cascade known as the "hydantoinase process", which allows the total conversion of D,L-5-monosubstituted hydantoins into optically pure D- or L-amino acids . It has strict stereospecificity for N-carbamoyl-D-amino acids and does not act upon the corresponding L-amino acids or on the N-formyl amino acids, N-carbamoyl-sarcosine, -citrulline, -allantoin and -ureidopropanoate, which are substrates for other amidohydrolases.
