KEGG   ENZYME: 1.17.2.3Help
Entry
EC 1.17.2.3                 Enzyme                                 

Name
formate dehydrogenase (cytochrome-c-553)
Class
Oxidoreductases;
Acting on CH or CH2 groups;
With a cytochrome as acceptor
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
formate:ferricytochrome-c-553 oxidoreductase
Reaction(IUBMB)
formate + 2 ferricytochrome c-553 = CO2 + 2 ferrocytochrome c-553 + H+ [RN:R03215]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
formate [CPD:C00058];
ferricytochrome c-553 [CPD:C01070]
Product
CO2 [CPD:C00011];
ferrocytochrome c-553 [CPD:C01071];
H+ [CPD:C00080]
Comment
The enzyme has been characterized from the bacterium Desulfovibrio vulgaris. In vitro, yeast cytochrome c, ferricyanide and phenazine methosulfate can act as acceptors.
