In enzymology, an alkenylglycerophosphoethanolamine hydrolase (EC is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

1-(1-alkenyl)-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine + H2O an aldehyde + sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are 1-(1-alkenyl)-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine and H2O, whereas its two products are aldehyde and sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine.

This enzyme belongs to the family of hydrolases, specifically those acting on ether bonds (ether hydrolases). The systematic name of this enzyme class is 1-(1-alkenyl)-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine aldehydohydrolase. This enzyme participates in ether lipid metabolism.
