, a 2,5-dioxopiperazine hydrolase
is an enzyme
the chemical reaction
- 2,5-dioxopiperazine + H2O glycylglycine
Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are 2,5-dioxopiperazine and H2O, whereas its product is glycylglycine.
This enzyme belongs to the family of hydrolases, those acting on carbon-nitrogen bonds other than peptide bonds, specifically in cyclic amides. The systematic name of this enzyme class is 2,5-dioxopiperazine amidohydrolase. Other names in common use include cyclo(Gly-Gly) hydrolase, and cyclo(glycylglycine) hydrolase.
