A new class EC 7, Translocases, has been added to the EC list. It will be part of ENZYME from release 2018_10. Read more about EC 7 here.

ENZYME entry: EC 1.17.1.9

Accepted Name
Formate dehydrogenase.
Alternative Name(s)
Formate dehydrogenase (NAD(+)).
Formic hydrogen-lyase.
NAD(+)-formate dehydrogenase.
Reaction catalysed
Formate + NAD(+) <=> CO(2) + NADH
Cofactor(s)
Flavin; Iron-sulfur; Mo cation.
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme from most aerobic organisms is devoid of redox-active centers but that from the proteobacterium Methylosinus trichosporium contains iron-sulfur centers, flavin and a molybdenum center.
  • Together with EC 1.12.1.2, forms a system previously known as formate hydrogenlyase.
  • Formerly EC 1.2.1.2.
