ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Aldehyde ferredoxin oxidoreductase.
Alternative Name(s)
Tungsten-containing aldehyde ferredoxin oxidoreductase.
Reaction catalysed
An aldehyde + H(2)O + 2 oxidized ferredoxin <=> a carboxylate + 2 H(+) + 2 reduced ferredoxin
Iron-sulfur; Tungstopterin.
  • This is an oxygen-sensitive enzyme.
  • Catalyzes the oxidation of aldehydes (including crotonaldehyde, acetaldehyde, formaldehyde and glyceraldehyde) to their corresponding acids.
  • However, it does not oxidize glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate (see EC
  • Can use ferredoxin or methylviologen but not NAD(P)(+) as electron acceptor.
