Accepted name: purine nucleosidase
Reaction: a purine nucleoside + H2O = D-ribose + a purine base
Other name(s): nucleosidase (misleading); purine β-ribosidase; purine nucleoside hydrolase; purine ribonucleosidase; ribonucleoside hydrolase (misleading); nucleoside hydrolase (misleading); N-ribosyl purine ribohydrolase; nucleosidase g; N-D-ribosylpurine ribohydrolase; inosine-adenosine-guanosine preferring nucleoside hydrolase; purine-specific nucleoside N-ribohydrolase; IAG-nucleoside hydrolase; IAG-NH
Systematic name: purine-nucleoside ribohydrolase
Comments: The enzyme from the bacterium Ochrobactrum anthropi specifically catalyses the irreversible N-riboside hydrolysis of purine nucleosides. Pyrimidine nucleosides, purine and pyrimidine nucleotides, NAD+, NADP+ and nicotinaminde mononucleotide are not substrates [6].
