Comments [?]

Function Catalyzes the conversion of N-formimidoyl-L-glutamate to L-glutamate and formamide.
Catalytic activity N-formimidoyl-L-glutamate + H(2)O = L-glutamate + formamide.
Cofactor Mn(2+)
Note: Binds 2 manganese ions per subunit.
Pathway Amino-acid degradation; L-histidine degradation into L-glutamate; L-glutamate from N-formimidoyl-L-glutamate (hydrolase route): step 1/1.
Similarity Belongs to the arginase family.
