ENZYME entry: EC 3.5.1.88

Accepted Name
Peptide deformylase.
Alternative Name(s)
PDF.
Polypeptide deformylase.
Reaction catalysed
Formyl-L-methionyl peptide + H(2)O <=> formate + methionyl peptide
Cofactor(s)
Fe(2+).
Comment(s)
  • Requires at least a dipeptide for an efficient rate of reaction.
  • N-terminal L-methionine is a prerequisite for activity but the enzyme has broad specificity at other positions.
  • Differs in substrate specificity from EC 3.5.1.27 and EC 3.5.1.31.
