IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: [protein ADP-ribosylarginine] hydrolase

Reaction: (1) protein-Nω-(ADP-D-ribosyl)-L-arginine + H2O = ADP-D-ribose + protein-L-arginine
(2) Nω-(ADP-D-ribosyl)-L-arginine + H2O = ADP-ribose + L-arginine

Other name(s): ADP-ribose-L-arginine cleavage enzyme; ADP-ribosylarginine hydrolase; Nω-(ADP-D-ribosyl)-L-arginine ADP-ribosylhydrolase

Systematic name: protein-Nω-(ADP-D-ribosyl)-L-arginine ADP-ribosylhydrolase

Comments: The enzyme will remove ADP-D-ribose from arginine residues in ADP-ribosylated proteins.
