Subsystem: Hydantoin metabolism
This subsystem's description is:
The biocatalytic conversion of 5-mono-substituted hydantoins to the corresponding D-amino acids or L-amino acids involves first the hydrolysis of hydantoin to a N-carbamoylamino acid by an hydantoinase or dihydropyrimidinase, followed by the conversion of the N-carbamoylamino acid to the amino acid by N-carbamylamino acid amidohydrolase ( N-carbamoylase).Pseudomonas putida strain RU-KM3S, with high levels of hydantoin-hydrolysing activity, has been shown to exhibit non-stereoselective hydantoinase and L-selective N-carbamoylase activity.
