Accepted name: N2-acetyl-L-2,4-diaminobutanoate deacetylase
Reaction: (2S)-2-acetamido-4-aminobutanoate + H2O = L-2,4-diaminobutanoate + acetate
Other name(s): doeB (gene name)
Systematic name: (2S)-2-acetamido-4-aminobutanoate amidohydrolase
Comments: The enzyme, found in bacteria, has no activity with (2S)-4-acetamido-2-aminobutanoate (cf. EC, ectoine hydrolase).
