Succinylglutamate desuccinylase / Aspartoacylase family
This family includes Succinylglutamate desuccinylase EC:3.1.-.- that catalyzes the fifth and last step in arginine catabolism by the arginine succinyltransferase pathway. The family also include aspartoacylase EC:184.108.40.206 which cleaves acylaspartate into a fatty acid and aspartate. Mutations in human ASPA lead to Canavan disease disease. This family is probably structurally related to pfam00246 (Bateman A pers. obs.).
