ENZYME entry: EC 3.5.1.91

Accepted Name
N-substituted formamide deformylase.
Reaction catalysed
N-benzylformamide + H(2)O <=> formate + benzylamine
Cofactor(s)
Zn(2+).
Comment(s)
  • While N-benzylformamide is the best substrate, the enzyme from Arthrobacter pascens can also act on the N-substituted formamides N-butylformamide, N-allylformamide, N-(2-(cyclohex-1- enyl)ethyl)formamide and N-(1-phenylethyl)formamide, but much more slowly.
  • Amides of other acids do not act as substrates.
