Family

Formate dehydrogenase accessory protein (IPR006452)

Short name: Formate_DH_accessory

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family of sequences describe an accessory protein required for the assembly of formate dehydrogenase of certain proteobacteria although not present in the final complex [PMID: 2170340]. The exact nature of the function of FdhE in the assembly of the complex is unknown, but considering the presence of selenocysteine, molybdopterin, iron-sulphur clusters and cytochrome b556, it is likely to be involved in the insertion of cofactors.
