Protein name
RecName: Full=Cyanide hydratase;
AltName: Full=Cyanide-degrading nitrilase;
AltName: Full=Formamide hydrolyase;

Comments [?]

Function Catalyzes the hydration of cyanide to formamide. Degradation of cyanide may be important for plant pathogenic fungi in infection of cyanogenic plants.
Catalytic activity RHEA:21720: formamide = H2O + hydrogen cyanide
Induction By cyanide.
Subunit Oligomer of dimers, forming left-handed helical fibers.
Similarity Belongs to the carbon-nitrogen hydrolase superfamily. Nitrilase family.
