Sulfur carrier protein FdhD (IPR003786)

Short name: FdhD

Family relationships

None.

Description

FdhD is a protein essential for the activity of formate dehydrogenases (FDHs) [PMID: 8034623], but it is not a component of membrane-bound formate dehydrogenase [PMID: 2170340]. In Escherichia coli, it has been shown to function as a sulfurtransferase between IscS to the molybdenum cofactor prior to its insertion into formate dehydrogenase [PMID: 25649206]. Sulfur transfer between IscS and FDH is a indispensable step for FDH activity [PMID: 22194618].
