ABSTRACT The activity of the allophanate hydrolase from Pseudomonas sp. strain ADP, AtzF, provides the final hydrolytic step for the mineralization of s-triazines, such as atrazine and cyanuric acid. Indeed, the action of AtzF provides metabolic access to two of the three nitrogens in each triazine ring. The X-ray structure of the N-terminal amidase domain of AtzF reveals that it is highly homologous to allophanate hydrolases involved in a different catabolic process in other organisms (i.e…

An unexpected vestigial protein complex reveals the evolutionary origins of an s-triazine catabolic enzyme
TLDR
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.
A novel decarboxylating amidohydrolase involved in avoiding metabolic dead ends during cyanuric acid catabolism in Pseudomonas sp. strain ADP
TLDR
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.
Structural and biochemical characterization of the biuret hydrolase (BiuH) from the cyanuric acid catabolism pathway of Rhizobium leguminasorum bv. viciae 3841
TLDR
The structure of the inactive Cys175Ser BiuH variant with substrate bound in the active site revealed that an active site cysteine (Cys175), aspartic acid (Asp36) and lysine (Lys142) form a catalytic triad, which is consistent with biochemical studies ofBiuH variants.
Crystal structures of Moorella thermoacetica cyanuric acid hydrolase reveal conformational flexibility and asymmetry important for catalysis
TLDR
The multiple conformations of the enzyme observed across a series of structures and corroborating biochemical data suggest importance of the structural dynamics in facilitating the substrate entry and the ring-opening reaction, catalyzed by a conserved Ser-Lys dyad.

Urea is the degradation product of a wide range of nitrogen containing bio-molecules. Urea amidolyase (UA) catalyzes the conversion of urea to ammonium, the essential first step in utilizing urea as
A structure-function study of the enzymes of the atrazine catabolic pathway
TLDR
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.
High-Resolution X-Ray Structures of Two Functionally Distinct Members of the Cyclic Amide Hydrolase Family of Toblerone Fold Enzymes
TLDR
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.

TLDR
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.
The urea carboxylase and allophanate hydrolase activities of urea amidolyase are functionally independent
TLDR
The results support the surprising functional independence of AH from UC in both the prokaryotic and fungal UAL enzymes and serve as an important reminder that the evolution of multifunctional enzymes through gene fusion events does not always correlate with enhanced catalytic function.
