ENZYME entry: EC 1.1.1.284

Accepted Name
S-(hydroxymethyl)glutathione dehydrogenase.
Alternative Name(s)
ADH3.
Chi-ADH.
Class III alcohol dehydrogenase.
FDH.
Formaldehyde dehydrogenase.
Formaldehyde dehydrogenase (glutathione).
Formic dehydrogenase.
GD-FALDH.
Glutathione-dependent formaldehyde dehydrogenase.
GS-FDH.
NAD- and glutathione-dependent formaldehyde dehydrogenase.
NAD-dependent formaldehyde dehydrogenase.
NAD-linked formaldehyde dehydrogenase.
Reaction catalysed
S-(hydroxymethyl)glutathione + NAD(P)(+) <=> S-formylglutathione + NAD(P)H
Comment(s)
  • The substrate, S-(hydroxymethyl)glutathione, forms spontaneously from glutathione and formaldehyde; its rate of formation is increased in some bacteria by the presence of EC 4.4.1.22.
  • Forms part of the pathway that detoxifies formaldehyde, since the product is hydrolyzed by EC 3.1.2.12.
  • Also specifically reduces S-nitrosylglutathione.
  • Formerly EC 1.2.1.1.
