Enzyme Commission Synonyms: nucleosidase (misleading), purine β-ribosidase, purine nucleoside hydrolase, purine ribonucleosidase, ribonucleoside hydrolase (misleading), nucleoside hydrolase (misleading), N-ribosyl purine ribohydrolase, nucleosidase g, N-D-ribosylpurine ribohydrolase, inosine-adenosine-guanosine preferring nucleoside hydrolase, purine-specific nucleoside N-ribohydrolase, IAG-nucleoside hydrolase, IAG-NH

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): -0.73301315Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Enzyme Commission Summary:
The enzyme from the bacterium Ochrobactrum anthropi specifically catalyses the irreversible N-riboside hydrolysis of purine nucleosides. Pyrimidine nucleosides, purine and pyrimidine nucleotides, NAD+, NADP+ and nicotinaminde mononucleotide are not substrates [Ogawa01].
