The mechanism of asymmetric production of l-aroniatic amino acids from the corresponding hydantoins by Flavobacterium sp. AJ-3912 was examined by investigating the properties of the enzymes involved in the hydrolysis of 5-substituted hydantoins corresponding to aromatic amino acids (A AH). The enzymatic hydrolysis of AAH by Flavobacterium sp. AJ-3912 consisted of the following two successive reactions; a hydrolytic ring opening reaction of dl-AAH to l- and d-form N-carbamyl aromatic amino acids… Expand
