enzymology, a beta-ureidopropionase (EC number|184.108.40.206) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:N-carbamoyl-beta-alanine + H2O beta-alanine + CO2 + NH3
This enzyme belongs to the family of
hydrolases, those acting on carbon-nitrogen bonds other than peptide bonds, specifically in linear amides. The systematic name of this enzyme class is N-carbamoyl-beta-alanine amidohydrolase. This enzyme participates in 3 metabolic pathways: pyrimidine metabolism, beta-alanine metabolism, and pantothenate and coa biosynthesis.
CAS registry numberfor this enzyme class is CAS registry|9027-27-4."
