In enzymology, Nα-benzyloxycarbonylleucine hydrolase (EC 3.5.1.64) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

Nα-benzyloxycarbonyl-L-leucine + H2O benzyl alcohol + CO2 + L-leucine

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are Nα-benzyloxycarbonyl-L-leucine and H2O, whereas its three products are benzyl alcohol, CO2, and L-leucine.

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 Nalpha-benzyloxycarbonyl-L-leucine urethanehydrolase. Other names in common use include benzyloxycarbonylleucine hydrolase, Nalpha-benzyloxycarbonyl amino acid urethane hydrolase IV, and alpha-N-benzyloxycarbonyl-L-leucine urethanehydrolase.
