Names and origin

Protein namesRecommended name:
Peptide deformylase

Short name=PDF
EC=3.5.1.88
Alternative name(s):
Polypeptide deformylase
Gene names
Name:def
Ordered Locus Names:spyM18_2025
OrganismStreptococcus pyogenes serotype M18 (strain MGAS8232) [Complete proteome] [HAMAP]
Taxonomic identifier186103 [NCBI]
Taxonomic lineageBacteriaFirmicutesBacilliLactobacillalesStreptococcaceaeStreptococcus

Protein attributes

Sequence length204 AA.
Sequence statusComplete.
Protein existenceInferred from homology

General annotation (Comments)

Function

Removes the formyl group from the N-terminal Met of newly synthesized proteins. Requires at least a dipeptide for an efficient rate of reaction. N-terminal L-methionine is a prerequisite for activity but the enzyme has broad specificity at other positions By similarity. HAMAP-Rule MF_00163

Catalytic activity

Formyl-L-methionyl peptide + H2O = formate + methionyl peptide. HAMAP-Rule MF_00163

Cofactor

Binds 1 Fe2+ ion By similarity. HAMAP-Rule MF_00163

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the polypeptide deformylase family.
