Accepted name: bis(5′-nucleosyl)-tetraphosphatase (symmetrical)
Reaction: P1,P4-bis(5′-adenosyl) tetraphosphate + H2O = 2 ADP
Other name(s): diadenosinetetraphosphatase (symmetrical); dinucleosidetetraphosphatasee (symmetrical); symmetrical diadenosine tetraphosphate hydrolase; adenosine tetraphosphate phosphodiesterase; Ap4A hydrolase; bis(5′-adenosyl) tetraphosphatase; diadenosine tetraphosphate hydrolase; diadenosine polyphosphate hydrolase; diadenosine 5′,5′′′-P1,P4-tetraphosphatase; diadenosinetetraphosphatase (symmetrical); 1-P,4-P-bis(5′-nucleosyl)-tetraphosphate nucleosidebisphosphohydrolase
Systematic name: P1,P4-bis(5′-nucleosyl)-tetraphosphate nucleosidebisphosphohydrolase
Comments: Also acts on bis(5′-guanosyl) tetraphosphate and bis(5′-adenosyl) pentaphosphate and, more slowly, on some other polyphosphates, forming a nucleoside bisphosphate as one product in all cases [cf. EC bis(5′-nucleosyl)-tetraphosphatase (asymmetrical)].
