Polypeptide deformylase
Gene names
Name:def
Ordered Locus Names:YPO0242, y4023, YP_0240
OrganismYersinia pestis [Reference proteome] [HAMAP]
Taxonomic identifier632 [NCBI]
Taxonomic lineageBacteriaProteobacteriaGammaproteobacteriaEnterobacterialesEnterobacteriaceaeYersinia

Protein attributes

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.
