- Agmatinase: In enzymology, an agmatinase is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction agmatine + H2O putrescine + urea Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are agmatine and H2O, whereas its two products are putrescine and urea. This enzyme belongs to the family of hydrolases, those acting on carbon-nitrogen bonds other than peptide bonds, specifically in linear amidines. The systematic name of this enzyme class is agmatine amidinohydrolase.
- agmatinase a.k.a. agmatine ureohydrolase (agmatinase) is a gene.
