Accepted name: Nα-benzyloxycarbonylleucine hydrolase
Reaction: Nα-benzyloxycarbonyl-L-leucine + H2O = benzyl alcohol + CO2 + L-leucine
Other name(s): benzyloxycarbonylleucine hydrolase; Nα-benzyloxycarbonyl amino acid urethane hydrolase IV; α-N-benzyloxycarbonyl-L-leucine urethanehydrolase
Systematic name: Nα-benzyloxycarbonyl-L-leucine urethanehydrolase
Comments: Also acts on Nα-t-butoxycarbonyl-L-leucine, and, more slowly, on the corresponding derivatives of L-aspartate, L-methionine, L-glutamate and L-alanine. cf. EC N-benzyloxycarbonylglycine hydrolase.
