In enzymology, a (S)-N-acetyl-1-phenylethylamine hydrolase (EC 3.5.1.85) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

N-acetylphenylethylamine + H2O phenethylamine + acetate

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are N-acetylphenylethylamine and H2O, whereas its two products are phenethylamine and acetate.

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 (S)-N-acetylphenylethylamine:H2O hydrolase. At least one compound, phenylmethanesulfonylfluoride is known to inhibit this enzyme.
