Most microbial D-hydantoinases have been reported to have catalytic properties similar to those of mammalian dihydropyrimidinases. Comparison of the primary structures of microbial D-hydantoinases with mammalian dihydropyrimidinases revealed that the amino acid homology is about 37% and functionally important residues are rigidly conserved at identical positions. Interestingly, however, the C-terminal regions were found to be completely mismatched with each other. In order to investigate the… CONTINUE READING
