Family

Kynurenine formamidase, vertebrates/fungi-type (IPR027519)

Short name: KFase_ver/fungi-typ

Family relationships

None.

Description

Kynurenine formamidase (EC:3.5.1.9) catalyses the hydrolysis of N-formyl-L-kynurenine to L-kynurenine, the second step in the kynurenine pathway of tryptophan degradation. It is required for elimination of toxic metabolites [PMID: 83140, PMID: 22690733].
