  1. Any amidohydrolase.


Amidase: In enzymology, an amidase is an enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of an amide: Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are monocarboxylic acid amide and H2O, whereas its two products are monocarboxylate and NH3. This enzyme belongs to the family of hydrolases, those acting on carbon-nitrogen bonds other than peptide bonds, specifically in linear amides. The systematic name of this enzyme class is acylamide amidohydrolase.
