Accepted name: 3-ketovalidoxylamine C-N-lyase

Reaction: 4-nitrophenyl-3-ketovalidamine = 4-nitroaniline + 5-D-(5/6)-5-C-(hydroxymethyl)-2,6-dihydroxycyclohex-2-en-1-one

Other name(s): 3-ketovalidoxylamine A C-N-lyase; p-nitrophenyl-3-ketovalidamine p-nitroaniline lyase; 4-nitrophenyl-3-ketovalidamine 4-nitroaniline-lyase

Systematic name: 4-nitrophenyl-3-ketovalidamine 4-nitroaniline-lyase [5-D-(5/6)-5-C-(hydroxymethyl)-2,6-dihydroxycyclohex-2-en-1-one-forming]

Comments: Requires Ca2+. Eliminates 4-nitroaniline from 4-nitrophenyl-3-ketovalidamine, or 4-nitrophenol from 4-nitrophenyl-α-D-3-dehydroglucoside. Involved in the degradation of the fungicide validamycin A by Flavobacterium saccharophilum.
