Deamination

   The removal of an amino group (NH2) from a chemical compound.



SIMILAR TERMS
--------------------------------------

An enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of nicotinamide to nicotinate and ammonia. EC 3.5.1.19.

Deaminase, Adenosine
An enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of adenosine to inosine with the elimination of ammonia. Since there are wide tissue and species variations in the enzyme, it has been used as a tool in the study of human and animal genetics and in medical diagnosis. EC 3.5.4.4.

Deaminase, Adenylate
An enzyme that catalyzes the deamination of AMP to IMP. EC 3.5.4.6.

Deaminase, AMP
An enzyme that catalyzes the deamination of AMP to IMP. EC 3.5.4.6.

Deaminase, Asparagine
A hydrolase enzyme that converts L-asparagine and water to L-aspartate and NH3. EC 3.5.1.1.

Deaminase, Cytidine
An enzyme that catalyzes the deamination of cytidine, forming uridine. EC 3.5.4.5.

Deaminase, DCMP
An enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolytic deamination of deoxycytidylic acid to deoxyuridylic acid and ammonia. It plays an important role in the regulation of the pool of deoxynucleotides in higher organisms. The enzyme also acts on some 5-substituted deoxycytidylic acids. EC 3.5.4.12.

Deaminase, Deoxycytidine Monophosphate
An enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolytic deamination of deoxycytidylic acid to deoxyuridylic acid and ammonia. It plays an important role in the regulation of the pool of deoxynucleotides in higher organisms. The enzyme also acts on some 5-substituted deoxycytidylic acids. EC 3.5.4.12.

Deaminase, Deoxycytidylate
An enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolytic deamination of deoxycytidylic acid to deoxyuridylic acid and ammonia. It plays an important role in the regulation of the pool of deoxynucleotides in higher organisms. The enzyme also acts on some 5-substituted deoxycytidylic acids. EC 3.5.4.12.

Deaminase, Ethanolamine
An enzyme that catalyzes the deamination of ethanolamine to acetaldehyde. EC 4.3.1.7.

Deaminase, Guanine
An enzyme that catalyzes the deamination of guanine to form xanthine. EC 3.5.4.3.

Deaminase, Histidine
An enzyme that catalyzes the first step of histidine catabolism, forming UROCANIC ACID and AMMONIA from HISTIDINE. Deficiency of this enzyme is associated with elevated levels of serum histidine. EC 4.3.1.3.

Deaminase, Homoserine
A multifunctional pyridoxal phosphate enzyme. In the final step in the biosynthesis of cysteine it catalyzes the cleavage of cystathionine to yield cysteine, ammonia, and 2-ketobutyrate. EC 4.4.1.1.

Deaminase, Myoadenylate
An enzyme that catalyzes the deamination of AMP to IMP. EC 3.5.4.6.

Deaminase, Serine
An enzyme of the lyase class that catalyzes the dehydration and deamination of L-serine to form pyruvate. (Dorland, 28th ed) EC 4.2.1.13.

Deaminase, Threonine
A pyridoxal-phosphate protein that catalyzes the deamination of threonine to 2-ketobutyrate and ammonia. The role of this enzyme can be biosynthetic or biodegradative. In the former role it supplies 2-ketobutyrate required for isoleucine biosynthesis, while in the latter it is only involved in the breakdown of threonine to supply energy. EC 4.2.1.16.

Deaminases, Nucleoside
Catalyze the hydrolysis of nucleosides with the elimination of ammonia.

Deaminases, Nucleotide
Catalyze the hydrolysis of nucleotides with the elimination of ammonia.

Deaminations

Deamino Arginine Vasopressin
A synthetic analog of the pituitary hormone, ARGIPRESSIN. Its action is mediated by the vasopressin receptor V2. It has prolonged antidiuretic activity, but little pressor effects. It also modulates levels of circulating FACTOR VIII and VON WILLEBRAND FACTOR.

It acts only on asparagine oligosaccharides containing one amino acid, i.e. the asparagine has free alpha-amino and alpha-carboxyl groups. (From Enzyme Nomenclature, 1992) EC 3.5.1.26.
