Protein

Bifunctional nitrilase/nitrile hydratase NIT4A

Gene

NIT4A

Organism
Lupinus angustifolius (Narrow-leaved blue lupine)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Involved in the cyanide detoxification pathway. Has nitrilase and nitrile-hydratase activity in the ratio 4.0:1, producing both asparagine and aspartic acid from beta-cyano-L-alanine (Ala(CN)). Can also use 3-phenylpropionitrile as substrate, but not indole-3-acetonitrile.1 Publication

Catalytic activityi

L-asparagine = 3-cyanoalanine + H2O.1 Publication
3-cyano-L-alanine + 2 H2O = L-aspartate + NH3.1 Publication

Kineticsi

  1. KM=1.18 mM for Ala(CN)1 Publication
  1. Vmax=477.7 nmol/sec/mg enzyme for the nitrilase activity1 Publication
