, an adenosine-phosphate deaminase
is an enzyme
the chemical reaction
- 5'-AMP + H2O 5'-IMP + NH3
Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are 5'-AMP and H2O, whereas its two products are 5'-IMP and NH3.
This enzyme belongs to the family of hydrolases, those acting on carbon-nitrogen bonds other than peptide bonds, specifically in cyclic amidines. The systematic name of this enzyme class is adenosine-phosphate aminohydrolase. Other names in common use include adenylate deaminase, adenine nucleotide deaminase, and adenosine (phosphate) deaminase.
