N-cyclopropylmelamine (also known as cyromazine), a triazine compound, is an insect growth regulator (IGR) insecticide that is effective against Drosophila melanogaster. Trizine-based compounds are among the most commonly used herbicides and insecticides in the United States and can be a pollutant of runoff water.
Pseudomonas sp. A degrades N-cyclopropylmelamine by deaminating the two amino groups, followed by deamination of the N-cyclopropyl group, to form cyanuric acid (Cook et al., 1984).
The following is a text-format N-cyclopropylmelamine pathway map. An organism which can initiate the pathway is given, but other organisms may also carry out later steps. Follow the links for more information on compounds or reactions. This map is also available in graphic (8k) format.
