Comments [?]

Function Catalyzes the hydrolysis of N-formyl-L-kynurenine to L-kynurenine, the second step in the kynurenine pathway of tryptophan degradation.
Catalytic activity RHEA:13009: H2O + N-formyl-L-kynurenine = formate + H(+) + L-kynurenine
EC 3.5.1.9
Cofactor Zn(2+)
Note: Binds 2 zinc ions per subunit.
Pathway Amino-acid degradation; L-tryptophan degradation via kynurenine pathway; L-kynurenine from L-tryptophan: step 2/2.
Subunit Homodimer.
Similarity Belongs to the Cyclase 1 superfamily. KynB family.
