Abstract

SUMMARY: The amidohydrolase formed in the later stages of growth on glucose peptone medium by was purified 60-fold from cell-free extracts. The purified enzyme hydrolysed mono- and di-carboxylic acid amides, benzamide, nicotinamide, pyrazinamide and certain β-hydroxyl substituted fatty acid amides, was inactive on -asparagine and -glutamine and was competitively inhibited by urea and -methylurea. Acetamide and nicotinamide together showed mutual competition.
