Allantoinase catalyses the hydrolysis of allantoin to allantoic acid. This reaction is a step in the purine degradation pathway, which produces nitrogenous waste for excretion. A cDNA encoding full-length allantoinase was cloned from a Ctenocephalides felis hindgut and Malpighian tubule (HMT) cDNA library. The cDNA encoded a 483 amino acid protein that had 43% identity with the bullfrog Rana catesbeiana allantoinase and contained the conserved histidine and aspartic acid residues required for… Expand
