Accepted name: chenodeoxycholoyltaurine hydrolase
Reaction: chenodeoxycholoyltaurine + H2O = chenodeoxycholate + taurine
Glossary: chenodeoxycholate = 3α,7α-dihydroxy-5β-cholan-24-oate
Systematic name: chenodeoxycholoyltaurine amidohydrolase
Comments: Some other taurine conjugates are hydrolysed, but not glycine conjugates of bile acids.
