Accepted name: glutamate formimidoyltransferase
Reaction: 5-formimidoyltetrahydrofolate + L-glutamate = tetrahydrofolate + N-formimidoyl-L-glutamate
Other name(s): FTCD (gene name); glutamate formyltransferase; formiminoglutamic acid transferase; formiminoglutamic formiminotransferase; glutamate formiminotransferase
Systematic name: 5-formimidoyltetrahydrofolate:L-glutamate N-formimidoyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme also catalyses formyl transfer from 5-formyltetrahydrofolate to L-glutamate. In eukaryotes, it occurs as a bifunctional enzyme that also has formimidoyltetrahydrofolate cyclodeaminase (EC activity.
