In molecular biology, ADP-ribosylglycohydrolase is a family of enzymes which catalyses ADP-ribosylations. This family includes enzymes such as ADP-ribosylarginine hydrolase (EC which cleaves ADP-ribose-L-arginine.[1] The family also includes dinitrogenase reductase activating glycohydrolase,[2] and most surprisingly jellyfish crystallins,[2] although these proteins appear to have lost the presumed active site residues.
