Accepted name: N-isopropylammelide isopropylaminohydrolase

Reaction: N-isopropylammelide + H2O = cyanuric acid + isopropylamine

Glossary: cyanuric acid = 1,3,5-triazine-2,4,6(1H,3H,5H)-trione = 2,4,6-trihydroxy-s-triazine

Other name(s): AtzC

Systematic name: N-isopropylammelide isopropylaminohydrolase

Comments: Involved in a pathway by which the herbicide atrazine, 2-chloro-4-(ethylamino)-6-(isopopylamino)-1,3,5-triazine, is degraded in bacteria via N-isopropylammelide, 2,4-dihydroxy-6-(isopropylamino)-1,3,5-triazine.
