X-Ray Structure of the Amidase Domain of AtzF, the Allophanate Hydrolase from the Cyanuric Acid-Mineralizing Multienzyme Complex
Interestingly, it is shown that AtzF forms a large, ca.
X-Ray Structure and Mutagenesis Studies of the N-Isopropylammelide Isopropylaminohydrolase, AtzC
A plausible catalytic mechanism is proposed, consistent with the biochemical and crystallographic data obtained that is similar to that found in carbonic anhydrase and other members of subtype III of the amidohydrolase family.
Theoretical investigation on binding process of allophanate to allophanate hydrolase
The energetic calculation suggests the existence of an intermediate state in the enzyme-substrate binding process and atomic-level investigation illuminates that Tyr299, Arg307 and Ser172 can stabilize the substrate in the intermediate state.
An unexpected vestigial protein complex reveals the evolutionary origins of an s-triazine catabolic enzyme
It is proposed that AtzEG was likely recruited into the cyanuric acid–mineralizing pathway from an ancestral glutamine transamidosome that required protein–protein interactions to enforce the exclusion of solvent from the transamidation reaction.
The structure of the hexameric atrazine chlorohydrolase AtzA
The structure of atrazine chlorohydrolase (AtzA) is presented and is used to reinterpret data from genetic, biochemical and evolutionary studies, providing insight into why this recently evolved
High-Resolution X-Ray Structures of Two Functionally Distinct Members of the Cyclic Amide Hydrolase Family of Toblerone Fold Enzymes
It is confirmed that members of the CyAH family have the unusual Toblerone fold, albeit with some significant differences, and two new structures are presented: a barbituric acid hydrolase and an enzyme of unknown function.
A novel decarboxylating amidohydrolase involved in avoiding metabolic dead ends during cyanuric acid catabolism in Pseudomonas sp. strain ADP
The first in vitro reconstruction of the complete, five-protein cyanuric acid catabolism pathway is presented, which indicates that AtzH may be an amidase responsible for converting 1,3-dicarboxyurea to allophanate (the AtzF substrate), and it is shown that atzHhomologs are commonly found in Proteobacteria associated with homologs of the atzG and atzE genes.
A structure-function study of the enzymes of the atrazine catabolic pathway
The aim of this study was to develop an understanding of the structure-function relationship of the enzymes from atrazine mineralization pathway from Pseudomonas sp ADP, and to propose a plausible reaction mechanism for this enzyme.


Purification and Characterization of Allophanate Hydrolase (AtzF) from Pseudomonas sp. Strain ADP
AtzF affects the cleavage of three carbon-to-nitrogen bonds via a mechanism similar to that of enzymes catalyzing single-amide-bond cleavage reactions, and appears to be widespread among bacteria.
Cyanuric acid hydrolase: evolutionary innovation by structural concatenation
The first X‐ray structure for the cyanuric acid hydrolase, AtzD, is reported, which is a novel fold that likely evolved via the concatenation of monomers of the trimeric YjgF superfamily and the acquisition of a metal binding site.
Structure and Function of Allophanate Hydrolase*
The crystal structure of the Kluyveromyces lactis allophanate hydrolase is determined and it is demonstrated that its N and C domains catalyze a two-step reaction and contribute to maintaining a dimeric form of the enzyme required for their optimal activities.
Purification and Characterization of TrzF: Biuret Hydrolysis by Allophanate Hydrolase Supports Growth
TrzF, the allophanate hydrolase from Enterobacter cloacae strain 99, was cloned, overexpressed in the presence of a chaperone protein, and purified to homogeneity and showed time-dependent inhibition by phenyl phosphorodiamidate and is a member of the amidase signature protein family.
Structure of malonamidase E2 reveals a novel Ser‐cisSer‐Lys catalytic triad in a new serine hydrolase fold that is prevalent in nature
The first structure of an AS family enzyme is reported, provided by the crystal structure of malonamidase E2 from Bradyrhizobium japonicum, which reveals a previously unidentified Ser‐cisSer‐Lys catalytic machinery that is absolutely conserved throughout the family.
Enzymatic Characterization of a Prokaryotic Urea Carboxylase
The first prokaryotic urea carboxylase (UCA) from a member of the alpha subclass of the class Proteobacteria, Oleomonas sagaranensis is identified, suggesting that the UCA of this organism may be involved in the assimilation of these compounds as nitrogen sources.
Ammonia Channel Couples Glutaminase with Transamidase Reactions in GatCAB
It is shown that the first U-A base pair in the acceptor stem and the D loop of tRNAGln serve as identity elements essential for discrimination by GatCAB and a complete model for the overall concerted reactions to synthesize Gln-t RNAGln is proposed.
Phaser crystallographic software
A description is given of Phaser-2.1: software for phasing macromolecular crystal structures by molecular replacement and single-wavelength anomalous dispersion phasing.
Urea amidolyase. I. Properties of the enzyme from Candida utilis.
Candida utilis contains an inducible enzyme, urea amidolyase, which catalyzes the decomposition of urea with formation of carbon dioxide and ammonia, and requires catalytic amounts of bicarbonate.
