ENZYME entry: EC 1.17.5.3

Accepted Name
Formate dehydrogenase-N.
Alternative Name(s)
Formate dehydrogenase N.
Nitrate inducible formate dehydrogenase.
Reaction catalysed
Formate + a quinone <=> CO(2) + a quinol
Cofactor(s)
Heme; Iron-sulfur; Molybdopterin guanine dinucleotide.
Comment(s)
  • Formate dehydrogenase-N oxidizes formate in the periplasm, transferring electrons via the menaquinone pool in the cytoplasmic membrane to a dissimilatory nitrate reductase (EC 1.7.5.1), which transfers electrons to nitrate in the cytoplasm.
  • The system generates proton motive force under anaerobic conditions.
  • Formerly EC 1.1.5.6.
