Accepted name: fusarinine-C ornithinesterase
Reaction: N5-acyl-L-ornithine ester + H2O = N5-acyl-L-ornithine + an alcohol
Other name(s): ornithine esterase; 5-N-acyl-L-ornithine-ester hydrolase
Systematic name: N5-acyl-L-ornithine-ester hydrolase
Comments: Hydrolyses the three ornithine ester bonds in fusarinine C. Also acts on N5-dinitrophenyl-L-ornithine methyl ester.
