Rule bt0030

[Pathway Prediction Engine] [All Rules List] [BBD Main Menu]

Pattern 4292
Nitrile -> Carboxylate


Aerobic Likelihood:              Neutral

EAWAG-BBD Reaction(s):
Acrylonitrile -----> Acrylate (reacID# r0622)
Benzonitrile -----> Benzoate (reacID# r0377)
Bromoxynil -----> 3,5-Dibromo-4-hydroxybenzoate (reacID# r0548)
Phenylacetonitrile -----> Phenylacetate (reacID# r0701)

Comments:
This rule handles the hydrolysis of a nitrile to a carboxylate. Some such biotransformations involve a primary amide intermediate, which is bypassed in this rule for simplification.

Similarities:
bt0443: Cyanohydrin --> Aldehyde
