ftr, Formylmethanofuran--tetrahydromethanopterin formyltransferase
Enzyme Classification 22.214.171.124
Also Known as
Catalyzes the reversible transfer of a formyl group from formylmethanofuran (formyl-MFR) to tetrahydromethanopterin (H(4)MPT) so as to produce 5-formyl tetrahydromethanopterin (5-formyl-H(4)MPT) and methanofuran (MFR). Homotetramer composed of two dimers. Dimerization is sufficient for enzyme activity, but tetramerization is required for high thermostability.
