case <OC:Methanobacteria> or <OC:Methanococci> or <OC:Methanomicrobia> or <OC:Methanopyri>
Function Catalyzes the reversible transfer of a formyl group from formylmethanofuran (formyl-MFR) to tetrahydromethanopterin (H(4)MPT) so as to produce 5-formyl tetrahydromethanopterin (5-formyl-H(4)MPT) and methanofuran (MFR).
Function Catalyzes the transfer of a formyl group from 5-formyl tetrahydromethanopterin (5-formyl-H(4)MPT) to methanofuran (MFR) so as to produce formylmethanofuran (formyl-MFR) and tetrahydromethanopterin (H(4)MPT).
end case
Catalytic activity Formylmethanofuran + 5,6,7,8-tetrahydromethanopterin = methanofuran + 5-formyl-5,6,7,8-tetrahydromethanopterin.
case <OC:Methanobacteria> or <OC:Methanococci> or <OC:Methanomicrobia> or <OC:Methanopyri>
Pathway One-carbon metabolism; methanogenesis from CO(2); 5,10-methenyl-5,6,7,8-tetrahydromethanopterin from CO(2): step 2/3.
end case
case <OC:Archaeoglobales>
Pathway Metabolic intermediate metabolism; lactate oxidation.
end case
case <OC:Bacteria>
Pathway One-carbon metabolism; formaldehyde degradation; formate from formaldehyde (H(4)MPT route): step 4/5.
end case
Subcellular location Cytoplasm.
Similarity Belongs to the FTR family.
