Accepted name: N-methylcarbamate hydrolase
Reaction: an N-methyl carbamate ester + H2O = an alcohol + methylamine + CO2
Glossary: carbaryl = N-methyl-1-naphthyl carbamate
Other name(s): mcbA (gene name); cehA (gene name); cfdJ (gene name); carbaryl hydrolase; carbofuran hydrolase
Systematic name: N-methyl carbamate ester hydrolase
Comments: The enzyme catalyses the first step in the degradation of several carbamate insecticides such as carbaryl, carbofuran, isoprocarb, propoxur, aldicarb and oxamyl. It catalyses the cleavage of the ester bond to release N-methylcarbamate, which spontaneously hydrolyses to methylamine and CO2. The enzymes from several Gram-negative bacteria were shown to be located in the periplasm.
