IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: Mn2+-dependent ADP-ribose/CDP-alcohol diphosphatase

Reaction: (1) CDP-choline + H2O = CMP + phosphocholine
(2) ADP-D-ribose + H2O = AMP + D-ribose 5-phosphate

Other name(s): Mn2+-dependent ADP-ribose/CDP-alcohol pyrophosphatase; ADPRibase-Mn

Systematic name: CDP-choline phosphohydrolase

Comments: Requires Mn2+. Unlike EC, ADP-ribose diphosphatase, it cannot utilize Mg2+. ADP-D-ribose, CDP-choline, CDP-ethanolamine and ADP are substrates for this enzyme but ADP-D-glucose, UDP-D-glucose, CDP-D-glucose, CDP, CMP and AMP are not hydrolysed [2]. In rat, the enzyme is found predominantly in thymus and spleen.
