Accepted name: aminopyrimidine aminohydrolase
Reaction: (1) 4-amino-5-aminomethyl-2-methylpyrimidine + H2O = 4-amino-5-hydroxymethyl-2-methylpyrimidine + NH3
(2) thiamine + H2O = 4-amino-5-hydroxymethyl-2-methylpyrimidine + 5-(2-hydroxyethyl)-4-methylthiazole
Other name(s): thiaminase (ambiguous); thiaminase II; tenA (gene name)
Systematic name: 4-amino-5-aminomethyl-2-methylpyrimidine aminohydrolase
Comments: Previously known as thiaminase II, this enzyme is involved in the regeneration of the thiamine pyrimidine from degraded products, rather than in thiamine degradation, and participates in thiamine salvage pathways.
