IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: (indol-3-yl)acetyl-L-aspartate hydrolase

Reaction: (indol-3-yl)acetyl-L-aspartate + H2O = (indol-3-yl)acetate + L-aspartate

Other name(s): indole-3-acetyl-L-aspartate hydrolase; iaaspH (gene name)

Systematic name: (indol-3-yl)acetyl-L-aspartate amidohydrolase

Comments: The enzyme, isolated from the bacterium Pantoea agglomerans, is specific for its substrate and does not act efficiently on other indole-3-acetate conjugates.
