Species: Pseudomonas putida 77
Subunit composition of N-carbamoylsarcosine amidohydrolase = [N-carbamoylsarcosine amidohydrolase subunit]
N-carbamoylsarcosine amidohydrolase from Pseudomonas putida 77 was purified and characterized. Different methods for determining the molecular mass of the enzyme gave different results - 102 kDa by ultracentrifugal equilibrium, 88 kDa by gel filtration, and 75 kDa by HPLC, making it impossible to calculate the number of subunits in the enzyme complex [Kim86].
The enzyme has a fairly broad substrate specificity, and N-carbamoyl amino acids with a methyl group or a hydrogen atom on the amino-N atom and possessing glycine, D-alanine, or one of their derivatives as an amino acid moyety served well as substrates.
The Km and Vm values for N-carbamoylsarcosine were 3.2 mM and 1.75 U/mg protein, respectively [Kim86].
