Accepted name: cyclohexyl-isocyanide hydratase
N-cyclohexylformamide = cyclohexyl isocyanide + H O 2
Other name(s): isonitrile hydratase;
N-cyclohexylformamide hydro-lyase (cyclohexyl-isocyanide-forming)
Comments: The enzyme from
Pseudomonas putida strain N19-2 can also catalyse the hydration of other isonitriles to the corresponding N-substituted formamides. The enzyme has no metal requirements.
