enzymology, an agmatinase (EC number|22.214.171.124) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:agmatine + H2O putrescine + urea
This enzyme belongs to the family of
hydrolases, those acting on carbon-nitrogen bonds other than peptide bonds, specifically in linear amidines. The systematic name of this enzyme class is agmatine amidinohydrolase. Other names in common use include agmatine ureohydrolase, and SpeB. This enzyme participates in urea cycle and metabolism of amino groups.
CAS registry numberfor this enzyme class is CAS registry|37289-16-0."
