, an acetylalkylglycerol acetylhydrolase
is an enzyme
the chemical reaction
- 2-acetyl-1-alkyl-sn-glycerol + H2O 1-alkyl-sn-glycerol + acetate
Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are 2-acetyl-1-alkyl-sn-glycerol and H2O, whereas its two products are 1-alkyl-sn-glycerol and acetate.
This enzyme belongs to the family of hydrolases, specifically those acting on carboxylic ester bonds. The systematic name of this enzyme class is 2-acetyl-1-alkyl-sn-glycerol acetylhydrolase. This enzyme is also called alkylacetylglycerol acetylhydrolase.
